In the Logo of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation, international charitable nonprofit organization is a blossom, a wild flower growing next to the BSB pond, where once bears were roaming. Today we provide nature conservation education to all countries on Earth Signature of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation, international charitable nonprofit organization Wild flower grow all over Earth. Almost all  colors are shown in wildflower blossoms. Texas is a big state and has many wild flowers, often called weed. Several flowers are endangered in the Texas Hill Country because urban sprawl takes away their places to grow. US air quality is a sad story. High energy demand is served by outdated energy production. High energy demand can be reduced by nature conservation through education. Low education levels resulting in high pollution, low water quality. Earth's environment depends on water. United States industry is endangering US water quality. United States industry + households have a high water demand, producing greenhouse gases resulting in climate change. BSB-research published in these news helps to keep Nature beautiful + to secure our future! Keep Earth beautiful to have a better life!

Wild flowers

Many wildflower photos are taken at BSB Nature Preserve.
Between 1890 and 1910 overgrazing destroyed big parts of the old Texas landscape, soil eroded, washed away. Nowadays our limestone slopes don't support many wildflowers, but where soil is left you will see many beautiful wildflowers, Texas Hill Country area.

A wildflower is a wild flower growing wild, meaning it was not intentionally seeded or planted. Wildflower meadows are mostly man made, but in same places Nature provided us with this treat.
The term "wildflower" is found in many languages, for example Germany has the word "Wildblumen". Wildflower are neither a hybrid nor a selected cultivar - it appears in the wild as a native plant.
Scientists do not like the term wildflower and generally try to be more specific - the latin names for our wildflowers are used all over Earth and make it much easier to talk about the same plant species.

BSB Science Nature conservation education: pollution facts, types of pollution, international pollution science. How to reduce global pollution, global greenhouse gases, global wildfires. Humans on Earth need better air quality, better water quality, unpolluted healthy rivers + ocean protection. Hurricanes kill animals + humans. Lower pollution with efficient home appliances, less energy waste, less water waste. Nature conservation reduces air pollution, water pollution with recycling, promotes green driving, energy conservation through better energy efficiency. Answers to all pollution environmental issues. Peter Marianne Bonenberger give lectures, fun filled multimedia presentations to show why to protect Earth's Nature - Greenhouse Gases

BSB research: Science definition Biodiversity means that every living being looks a little bit different, that babies do not look alike, that we have different plants, different health problemsBiodiversity

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!

BSB Conservation education explains how why to conserve trees, to plant new trees, to help a tree to grow, is one of the main tasks of a Master Conservationist. Why conservation education? Why is ethics responsibility so important? Why are the laws of nature still valid? Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation protects Nature providing conservation education, how fighting pollution, how efficient energy use betters our life. Environmentally friendly hydrogen fuel cells are green energy. Fuel cells lower air pollution, low greenhouse gases prevent droughts, floods, wildfires. Climate changed causes storms endangering life + well being of all life including humans. Nature conservation through science based Nature education saves money, makes happier healthier people. Goal: An educational website to protect humans in the future. Environmental solutions to keep Nature beautiful, conserve energy, lower pollution CO2, lower greenhouse gases methane, water body contamination to have a life with affordable food prices. BSB helps you not to go hungry. Nature news for a better life. Mission: Conservation education.
