Healthy ecosystems for healthy flora and fauna

The Cibolo Preserve’s land stewardship goal is to manage the land utilizing a science-based ecosystem management approach.  Healthy ecosystems are the basis for vigorous wildlife populations and diverse native plant communities.  Healthy ecosystems result in watersheds that are resilient and produce abundant and high-quality water.   

Land management activities will support research and employ those findings in a way that will continually improve management and stewardship.  Through sound management we will facilitate the education of our community and future land stewards.

By integrating both professional and citizen scientists into our research program, we simultaneously have a robust research and teaching model that provides feedback to us for refinement of our land stewardship approaches.  This model also allows citizen scientists to take this information back to other land owners in the local community based on their experiences.
