From Cedar Break to Cedar ParkPreserving an old growth cedar forest
DESCRIPTIONCedar has been vilified by ranchers for encroachment on grasslands, consumption of water, and causing erosion. Recent research has provided new information that counters many of these long held beliefs. The program will present the case for preservation of old growth cedar in the hill country from one rancher's unique perspective and 23-year experience in ranch restoration in Boerne. Hillside erosion control and trail building techniques will be presented as we hike to the top of Malakopf Hill where 360 degree views of Boerne surround an historic Texas monument honoring Ferdinand Herff.
