South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center

Since opening in 1996, the South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center has grown like a weed, from 1 to 182 acres, providing a home for thousands of birds, butterflies, and blossoming plants. Their gardens, greenhouses, trails, and boardwalks are set into the landscape of the Oso Creek, allowing guests to observe species in their natural habitat without provoking the ire of territorial snapdragons. Following a mission to advance knowledge and appreciation of the environment, the organization also hosts classes and workshops on topics such as orchidology and cooking cactus for dinner. Members’ annual contributions help to sustain the nonprofit organization and garner them unlimited admission, discounts at Nature's Boutique, and invitations to members-only events, such as the annual member-plant dance.

    “Pay attention to the time of year you go. We came from Indiana in late December and many flowers we would have liked to see weren't in bloom. They say May to late fall is a better time. We plan to return. It is a beautiful place. ”

  • “Go on a not so windy day. There is quite a bit to see & they have quite a few animals. Nice stroll among the flowers.”
