We were visiting for a brthday and stopped in. The indoor displays are very interesting and there is a nice gift shop. Outside there are many species of plants and trees, and a rainwater system. It also connects to the fabulous river trail.

On the banks of the Guadalupe with access to the river trail. A few historic buildings on premises. The shortest FM road in Texas. Also near river park for a picnic.

Here you can attend lectures, take a nature walk, buy a book, learn about native plants, and even buy them during the plant sales that occur from time to time. Pretty, shady spot on the Guadalupe River in Kerrville.

It’s hard to travel along the county roads in the Hill Country without seeing water measuring devices at the roads’ lowest points. Most we’ve seen show increments in feet, from 1-5 feet. That’s because this is “Flash Flood Alley,” where year after year, Texas leads...More

Not at the Nature Center, but you can fish in the river that runs along River Trail park just down from the Nature Center.
