The Blue Hole Nature Center concept was developed to accommodate the growing success of the Blue Hole Nature Camp. This updated Nature Center would facilitate and enhance the acclaimed nature-based educational program opportunities for Wimberley and Hay County residents of all ages. The plans include:
2 classrooms that can be used for indoor/outdoor teaching spaces
An environmental education center
Older youth nature-based playgrounds
Prairie and wetland restoration areas
The Blue Hole Nature Center Concept Plan (PDF) was submitted to the Parks and Open Space Advisory Commission through Hays County for consideration for the 2020 Hays County Parks and Open Space Bond. The total budget for this project is $3.1 million and will be acquired through potential bonds, grants, and private partnerships.
