Riverside Nature Center is located in the heart of Kerrville on the Guadalupe River at the junction of Town Creek. This former small farm has been transformed into an urban wildlife and native plant sanctuary.
We invite you to come visit our unique arboretum with over 75 species of native trees and shrubs as well as cacti, glorious wildflowers, shrubs, native grasses, birds, insects and other animals. Meandering walking trails lead you through the Nature Center and down to the banks of the beautiful Guadalupe River.
