(210) 688-9055, x2010

Take a plant walk to discover the diverse native wildflowers, trees, and shrubs of Bexar County.

Do you want to know more about the Native Plants in NW Bexar County? If so, please join us for a fairly easy hike (about 1.5 miles round trip) over gentle terrain. We will discuss how local geology has contributed to the extensive biodiversity across the region and how the resulting plant life encouraged Native Americans and European settlers to live here. We will explore up to 30 native Texas plants (season dependent) and discuss how they support favorable habitats. Open to all ages, minors must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.

No reservations required; no pets please. All Natural Area entry fees apply. Meet at the Visitors Center by the rainwater harvesting tower.

NOTE: The Natural Area front gates open at 7:00AM; plan to be at the Visitor Center and ready to go no later than 8:45AM; the hike starts promptly at 9:00AM. Weekend mornings can be very busy. To ensure entrance and save time at the Fee Booth, please pre-purchase and print out a day pass.

Dress for hiking outdoors; sunscreen and hat recommended. Wear sturdy footwear appropriate for rough trails; bring at least 1 liter of water PER PERSON and a snack.

If ADA assistance is required, please request modifications using this form, or email at least 2 weeks in advance.
