On April 20th, the Kerrville Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas along with the Riverside Nature Center will be celebrating Earth Day with a day of events at the Riverside Nature Center. 

We have attended the this event a couple of times in the past, and we plan to be there this year too.  

If you have not been before, you have been missing out.  But now's your chance to join in on the activities, meet the local folks from the native plant society and the master naturalist group.  You'll also get to meet the people that volunteer at the Riverside Nature Center. And most of all, you'll get to see why these folks are celebrating Earth Day.



I'm looking forward to seeing Jim Stanley again. He'll be talking about harvesting rainwater. (You probably know Jim and his wife Priscilla from the local Master Naturalist Group, his volunteer work at the Riverside Nature Center, and his book, "Hill Country Landowner's guide".)    

If you haven't seen the newly constructed River Trail, there will be a guided walk with the RNC founder, Susan Sanders.

Bring the kids, there will be activities scheduled between 9 am and 2:30 pm, including the live butterfly display.

Plus, the event coincides with the Native Plant Sale.  I can't wait to browse and choose some for my hillside.

Hope to see you there.
