About this title


Chronicles the husband-and-wife team's efforts to develop and learn to operate a nature center though they had no formal training in it. It eventually grew into the Cibolo Nature Center in Boerne, Texas. Their focus is not so much on their success as on what they learned that others could use in their own communities. Their vision of a nature center is a place for people to enjoy the environment, preserve a region's natural heritage, learn, and maybe attract tourists. They include an annotated bibliography.
