The Kerrville Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas is in the process of creating a Native Plant Garden in a raised bed behind the Riverside Nature Center.  It will feature deer-resistant plants (those low on the list of deer preferences) in the area which is open. Conservation gardening priority plants (those overgrazed by deer) are featured in the area behind the fence.
