(March 26, 2010)--UTSA faculty members and their students can now ask for approval for access for research purposes to the Cibolo Preserve, a 500-acre tract east of Boerne in south-central Kendal County. The application deadline is Friday, April 16.

The land is notable for its beauty, variety of flora and fauna, geological features and areas of archeological interest. A creek bisects the land with sections on the floodplain of the creek and recent alluvium on adjacent terraces of the creek. The most unique geological feature is a narrow canyon through a large exposure of caprinid reef.

The UTSA Office of Vice President for Research is currently working with Cibolo Preserve trustees to present suggested projects for research and learning for fall 2010.

For the approval request form for UTSA personnel, visit the UTSA Office of the Vice President for Research Web site.
