Philosophy/Belief Statement:

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’re building 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.

Program History:

In 1988, Carolyn Chipman Evans, her husband, Brent Evans, and a handful of friends dreamed of protecting a segment of the precious Cibolo Creek in Boerne, Texas and the land around it as a wildlife preserve where families could enjoy and appreciate nature. Carolyn approached the City of Boerne to urge the restoration of disappearing marshland and the creation of nature trails on 100 acres of the existing Boerne City Park adjacent to the creek. The city's cooperation, and Carolyn's enthusiasm, brought a rebirth to the land and a renaissance of public concern for conservation of Boerne's natural resources. Open to the public since Earth Day 1990, the Cibolo Nature Center & Farm today is a prime example of community caring. Thanks to thousands of volunteers' dedicated work, the community is preserving its natural heritage for future generations.
