Cibolo Nature Center and Farm

Location: CENTRAL, Texas

Cibolo Nature Center and Farm (CNC&F) was founded by Carolyn and Brent Evans in 1988, who urged the city of Boerne to restore disappearing marshland on 100 acres of an existing city park adjacent to Cibolo Creek. Beginning with the Cibolo Creek, CNC&F’s aim is to ensure our natural treasures are not only protected but thriving. To accomplish this, they are building a unique conservation model to protect natural resources, study and learn from the natural world, teach and apply sustainable farming practices, and encourage the enjoyment and celebration of nature. Through collaborative conservation efforts, CNC&F and its partners have protected nearly 1,300 acres within the Cibolo Watershed, including five miles of sensitive groundwater recharge in the surrounding canyonlands.

Located on the remnants of historic Herff Ranch, CNC&F includes 62 acres of farmland across Cibolo Creek from the CNC nature preserve, including the restored original ranch homestead. Here they offer educational programs on techniques for sustainable living, including an organic demonstration garden. Additionally, the Cibolo Nature Center offers miles of trails through a variety of habitats, where visitors can enjoy hiking, horseback riding, picnicking, birdwatching, and more. The Cibolo Nature Center & Farm offers nature-focused education, research, entertainment and outdoor activities for more than 100,000 visitors a year.

The Cibolo Nature Center and Farm received a TxN Certification in 2016. View the certification page here.
