I had come to Texas to see the wildflowers and this was the perfect place for a non Texan to learn about native plants and wildlife in the area. Located near the confluence of Town Creek and the Guadalupe River with huge bald cypress (one...More

We came across this while passing by and was very pleased. It's worth the stop to stroll along the river. Very family friendly.

The gardens and staff at the nature center were wonderful. Even in the fall (not peak for wildflowers) we enjoyed walking the gardens and then heading down to the river trail. It is always a good indication of "community" when you find organizations banding together...More

Lived here for years; can't believe I'd never been before! Inside houses a few small exhibits that rotate. There could be some improvements here, but this center is free to the public, open 7 days a week, and runs on the passion of volunteers. So...More
