The Rio Grande Nature Center is one of my favorite places to escape from the bustle of town and hang out on a sunny day. And I love herbs, so let’s go…

The Friends of the Rio Grande Nature Center present Herbfest 2012 on Saturday and Sunday, May 12 and 13. This free event is a celebration of native plants, herbs, and wildflowers at the Rio Grande Nature Center State Park and the weekend includes a bunch of family-friendly activities:

  • Bird walks
  • Nature walks and a children’s nature walk
  • Gardening and herb talks, a demo and slideshows, and garden tours
  • Wildlife Rescue
  • Arts & crafts vendors
  • Plant sales
  • Kids’ activities and face-painting
  • Live music and storytelling
  • Raffle to win $100 and a free night’s stay for two at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa.

Check out the entire PDF two-day schedule of free Herbfest 2012 events to see all the activities and decide which day (or both!) you want to attend.

Note that while admission to the event is FREE for all, there is a parking fee of $3 per car,  unless you’re a member of The Friends of the Rio Grande Nature Center.

Rio Grande Nature Center State Park is located at 2901 Candelaria Rd NW.
