(April 26, 2010)--Faculty from UTSA and their students can ask for approval for access for research purposes to the Cibolo Preserve, a 500-acre ranch just east of Boerne in south central Kendall County. The land is notable for its beauty, variety of flora and fauna, geological features and areas of archeological interest. Research access in this application cycle will be granted for fiscal year 2011.
A creek bisects the land with sections on the floodplain of the creek and recent alluvium on adjacent terraces of the creek. Slopes around the creek offer special microhabitats for some of the region's more interesting plant species. The most unique geological feature is a narrow canyon through a large exposure of caprinid reef.

Access for research will be limited strictly to UTSA faculty and their students pre-approved for entry onto the land. To apply, fill out the application available through the link on the UTSA Vice President for Research website; scroll to "Research Opportunities on Cibolo Preserve."
Examples of requests for access that have been submitted can be viewed on the Web page "Proposed Research Activities." Once an application is submitted, it will be added to the Proposed Research Activities page. When submitted, a second more detailed form will be presented.
