Conservation

WILD PLACES DEFINE WHO WE ARE AS TEXANS. REGENERATION IS AT THE CORE OF THESE PLACES AND AT THE HEART OF DESERT DOOR’S CULTURE.

TO FURTHER THIS, DESERT DOOR TEXAS SOTOL IS INTRODUCING A CONSERVATION SERIES IN PARTNERSHIP WITH LAND STEWARDS IN TEXAS.

Conservation Series #1

BACK BURN

Our first project focuses on a time-tested process that embodies the Texas land - prescribed fire.


Prescribed fire is a raw practice, one of rebirth. This natural process has been ignited to prevent destructive fires, manage landscapes, restore natural woodlands, and for research purposes.


This partnership between Desert Door, 7 Oaks Ranch, Sul Ross University, and other land stewards used the powerful regenerative force of prescribed fire to foster new plant growth, expand wildlife populations, and create a healthy ecosystem at a large ranch in West Texas. Specifically we aimed to restore native grasses which prevent soil erosion and allow for proper water distribution on a mass of land where drought is recurring. The horizon is promising.
