The Cibolo Nature Center & Farm has a new name — same great mission.


Resilience Solutions for the
Texas Hill Country

Increasingly, communities across the nation are working to make themselves more resilient: better able to prepare, adapt and creatively respond to environmental and economic impacts on community well-being.

The following is a menu of strategies that can be activated to support communities, organizations and advocates, seeking a resilient future.

Boerne: Resiliency in Action

Located in Kendall County, the fifth fastest-growing county in the United States, Boerne has attracted many new residents, dramatically increasing its population and adding to developmental pressures. The area’s existing water supply, transportation network, infrastructure systems, and natural environment are burdened like never before. Boerne is not alone in the Hill Country as it faces these external shocks and stressors – but it is singularly catalytic in how it is addressing them.

Cibolo Center for Conservation: A Community Champion for Resiliency

The Cibolo’s vision for Boerne is a sustainable, resilient community that prioritizes conservation, community, economic strategy, and quality of life. For over 30 years, the Cibolo has deepened its community’s connection to its land and water and has become a model of conservation education throughout the state and beyond. At the same time, it strives to make its hometown of Boerne and Kendall County into a model for smart growth in the Texas Hill Country.
