Selah: Water from Stone

Ecosystem services, Restoration

A fascinating example of landscape restoration. Almost 50 years ago, David Bamberger used his fortune to purchase 5,500 acres of overgrazed land in the Texas Hill Country. Planting grasses to soak in rains and fill hillside aquifers, Bamberger devoted the rest of his life to restoring the degraded landscape. Today, the land has been restored to its original habitat and boasts enormous biodiversity. Source: Fin&Fur Films
