Stop by and see this nature center if you are interested in the
native plants of the Hill Country or just love a leisurely stroll with
beauty. The path goes right by the Guadalupe River. It is not for profit....many volunteers take care of this beautiful nature center.

We visited in the middle of an extended drought and still there was plenty to see. (We were scouting examples of native / drought-resistant plants to use in our landscaping so this was actually a plus.) Plants and trees were clearly marked and there were checklists for birds, butterflies, etc. that had been seen there.

The whole visit took less than an hour including a walk down by the Guadalupe river and a visit to the gift shop. I wouldn't drive from as far as San Antonio just to see the Center but it was a relaxing road stop on our way to Ingram. If you are visiting the area it is worth the stop.

Some of the summer camps / classes offered by the Center sounded interesting too.

The Nature Center is close to downtown Kerrville and backs up to the beautiful Guadalupe River. A very nice nature trail focusing on native Hill Country plants, self-guided, can keep you occupied for close to an hour. Great also for birdwatching, bald eagles and, hawks, and white pelicans have been sighted there. Inside there is a small exhibit area and a few Texas 'critters" in glass cases....be sure and check out "Martha", the tarantula! A small gift shop offers up a lot of nature-based gifts and books. Gardens and trails open dawn to dusk; visitor center open Mon-Fri 9-4 and Sat-Sun 10-3.
