OUR MISSION IS TO PROMOTE CONSERVATION OF NATURAL RESOURCES THROUGH EDUCATION AND STEWARDSHIP.
WHO WE ARE:
The Cibolo Nature Center and Farm is a community that passionately believes our brightest future is one lived in harmony with nature. Beginning with the Cibolo Creek, our aim is to ensure our natural treasures are not only protected, but thriving. To do this, we built a unique conservation model to protect our resources, study and learn from the natural world, teach and apply sustainable farming practices, and encourage the enjoyment and celebration of nature. We believe that our model is teachable and that our successes in the Cibolo Creek can be replicated in conservation efforts across the globe.
We have the Cibolo Nature Center, located at 140 City Park Road in Boerne. Here you will find trails that wind through four distinct ecosystems: creek, prairie, woodlands and marsh. We also have education programs for both children and adults, ongoing research projects for flora, fauna and water quality, and Native Texas plants.
On the other side of Cibolo Creek you will find Herff Farm, which can be accessed at 33 Herff Road. Open to the public on Saturdays, Herff Farm volunteers are permitted to work throughout the week. Here we have gardens, education programs, the historic Herff House, a Farmers Market (Saturdays) and events/festivals.
The Cibolo Nature Center & Farm is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is committed to the value of hands-on nature education and conservation of natural resources, supported by the generosity of donors.
