The Rio Grande Nature Center welcomes visits by school, scouting, religious and other groups on a self-guided or guided basis.  Guided programs for groups include nature walks, bird walks, pond explorations, and trunk programs (i.e. indoor explorations of topics such as mammals, birds or rocks).  All groups wishing to visit the park must register in advance by filling out a Group Registration Form.  If you would like the RGNC to bring a booth to your event (environmental fair, science fiesta, etc), please email Instructional Coordinator, Karen Herzenberg, at
