50 Years Ago, This Was a
Wasteland

Almost
50 years ago, fried chicken tycoon 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. Bamberger's model of
land stewardship is now being replicated across the region and he is considered
to be a visionary in land management and water conservation.
