Venue: Valley Nature Center
Address: 301 S. Border Ave., Texas 787596
The Valley Nature Center’s 6 acre park is home to a wide variety of the LRGV’s native plants and animals. Many plants were transplanted during the past 35 years to this protected area from sites which were slated for development. There is an on-going effort to enhance the plant diversity of the park. This aim is for protection of local plant species diversity as well as to make diverse food and habitat available for resident and migratory wildlife. By strolling the 1 mile of trails of the Nature Park, one may examine plant species native to such diverse areas as the Sabal Palm Grove, Arroyo Colorado Brush, the Barretal, Coastal Lomas, and the Chihuahuan Thorn Forest.
