And a bright future at Roberts Ranch 

Tucked away in the scenic Texas Hill Country, near the historic town of Comfort, lies Roberts Ranch, a 1,200 acre property owned by the YMCA of Greater San Antonio. Many Y volunteers and members may be unaware that the Y owns this beautiful property. However, the ranch will soon be home to some new and exciting Y programming that will increase awareness of the ranch.

In the late 1990’s Roberts Ranch was generously donated to the Y by the late Bob Roberts of Comfort. Mr. Roberts envisioned the ranch to be a place where families and children could gather to explore the outdoors and learn about good stewardship of the land in a beautiful Hill Country setting. The pristine habitat, native plants and wildlife make the ranch the perfect laboratory for discovering nature.

For years, the property has served hundreds of children through an outdoor education program sponsored by Texas Parks and Wildlife and Texas Wildlife Association. The local 4-H, some Boy Scouts, and the North American Trail Ride Conference have also begun utilizing the property for education, outdoor work projects, and the extensive trail system. The Y is hoping to greatly increase the number of children and families served at the ranch through new programming intended to fulfill Mr. Roberts’ vision. Potential programs that may be offered at the ranch include conservation and stewardship workshops, camping, hiking, fishing and wildlife study.
