I recently had an opportunity to attend a meeting at the Kerrville Riverside Nature Center in Kerrville, Texas. This visit happened in the middle of January so there was not a lot of wildlife out or green plants blooming. Thus, I cannot say that I got to see the outdoor grounds in all of their Springtime Glory. But, what I did see looks quite promising. I suspect that this would be a great place to bring small children to experience nature without having to wander way off in the back and beyond.
Inside the Nature Center, there are displays that discuss the Hill Country prior to European settlement. At one time, there were many large cypress trees lining the rivers in this region. Many of them were cut down for Timber, but a few groves of cypress trees can still be found in the Hill Country. Because the Nature Center is located right next to the Guadalupe River, most of the displays focus on riparian habitats.
I was only here for meeting and thus I did not get to wetness the nature programs put on by this Center. I would however like to return and see what this place looks like in the springtime when the wild flowers are blooming.
