Launching the series for 2015, Riverside Nature Center’s 2nd Tuesday Brown Bag Lunch & Learn is “Winter: Dead or Alive.”

Let resident naturalist Susan Sander show you what’s going on in the winter garden. You just might be surprised!






Welcome to Riverside Nature Center of Kerrville’s website. We’re under renovations at the moment–Jan. 2015–updating and rearranging documents for a while.

Welcome to Riverside Nature Center of Kerrville’s website. We’re under renovations at the moment (Oct. 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

1. Learn more about Riverside Nature Center.

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.
