BSB research on trees: keep Earth Beautiful is the mission of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation which protects over 300 Madrone trees in the Texas Hill country. BSB nature preserve has thousands of junipers - Texas Cedars - juniperus ashei. Junipers - all Trees are a good protection of all life, flora + fauna on Earth. Because of a changed balance in the air, greenhouse gases as carbon dioxide CO2, are changing the  climate on Earth, global air temperatures are climbing, methane ice is thawing, changing air chemistry. Life on Earth needs a long time to change, but humans produce air pollution in huge amounts in a short period of time. An increased recycling rate would reduce Co2 carbon dioxide levels helping ocean conservation. Fuel cells can reduce air pollution, climate change, ocean pollution. BSB stands up for protection of all life, flora + fauna on Earth = human protection, conservation of all water on Earth = human protection, conservation of all soil on Earth = human protection through affordable conservation education online to keep nature beautiful. At BSB nature reserve Madrone trees grow always under a juniper. A special fungus in the soil helps the Madrone seed to germinate. Keep Nature beautiful, secure our future, have a better life!

Texas Hill Country Nature

Welcome to


of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation

People who have never been to Texas often think the state is one big, hot, dusty desert with little color and even less wildlife. Maybe a cactus or two along a desolate highway, where tumbleweeds roll across, and a longhorn steer wandering around off in the distance. But that couldn't be further from the truth! Texas can be filled with beautiful, colorful flowers and a great deal of wildlife. Take a look at just a small sampling of some of the wildflowers you can find and what time of year you might see them. Spring (of course) is when many of the flowers are in bloom,
Spring would definitely be a great time of year to come, to walk with us.
Fall is also a wonderful time, when our oaks, our cherries show their beautiful colors!

Bear Springs Blossom nature center a nature education school for Master Conservationists

BSB curriculum

Mexico environmental problems include not enough affordable nature conservation education to expand food production Spain offers to little conservation education courses - members from Argentina help to spread the word of nature conservation, nature education - Indonesia cuts down a lot of tree. Missing nature conservation education leads to deforestation, water contamination, erosion problems because of deforestation, endangering marine life and humans - China has a growing population, more energy, more food, nature conservation education is very low on the to do list - German schools offer conservation education, but a lot of people are too busy to learn new things

BSB recycling facts: Recycling to save resources! All raw materials and all energy are provided by our blue planet Earth, but they are NOT endless. Unfortunately, most of the provided raw materials + energy are not usable as they appear in Nature and are spread globally in deposits. Men need to use a lot of energy + resources to produce the materials we need. We have to collect, clean, concentrate, and transform these resources to generate primary raw materials that are usable for people and industry. Using recycled materials reduces the amount of energy + reduces the amount of materials we have to dig out! Most of all things we use can be recycled!
