Logo of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation, international charitable nonprofit organization providing nature conservation education to all countries on Earth Signature of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation, international charitable nonprofit organization Online distance learning Global issue: Trees. 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!

BSB was founded 2002
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

Global warming - - Climate Change

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!
