Riverside Nature Center is sad to report that our LIFE and CHARTER MEMBER, William E. "Bill" Laing, passed away on Saturday, Nov. 22. Bill and his wife never wavered in their support for the 25 years since Riverside's beginning. We send our deepest condolences to the Laing family.
To remember Bill's unflagging support, our next exhibit, 'Hill Country ROCKS,' will be dedicated to this rock-hound extraordinaire.2ND TUESDAY BROWN BAG LUNCH & LEARN

Welcome to Riverside Nature Center of Kerrville's website. We're under renovations at the moment (Dec. 2014), and will be updating and rearranging documents for a while. We hope you'll be patient as we transform this site. In the meantime, here are a few suggestions
2. Our current exhibit:
"Hill Country Wildlife" is currently on display. This exhibit shows fauna--be they scary or magnificent--and tells the story of how we share this home we call the Hill Country. You'll learn their habitat and habits, both visually. The diorama was designed by Joyce Moore, technical guidance biologist for Texas Parks & Wildlife, which gives arch credibility to the exhibit. And, of course, there's fun to be had, as well. Check out the Wildlife Diner while you're in the Visitors Center, or say hi to our mascot, our cornsnake Shucks. Don't worry--he's the only living creature in the display!
There's no charge to enjoy the exhibit. However, we're member-owned, primarily volunteer operated, and rely heavily on membership revenue, donations from visitors and other generous benefactors, We do appreciate donations.
