Brent Evans of Cibolo Nature Center Recognized for his support of Eagle Scout projects
In 1988 Carolyn Chipman Evans approached the City of Boerne to urge them to restore disappearing marshland and create nature trails in 100 acres of the existing Boerne City Park. The city’s cooperation and Carolyn’s enthusiasm brought a rebirth to the land and a renaissance of public concern for conservation of Boerne’s natural resources. Thousands of volunteer hours have made the Cibolo Nature Center a prime example of community caring and an excellent model of a local community’s efforts to preserve its natural heritage. Open to the public since Earth Day 1990, the Cibolo Nature Center provides education, research, entertainment and outdoor activities for more than 100,000 visitors a year, while promoting sound stewardship of land, water and wildlife.
Brent Evans, who co-founded the CNC with his wife, was honored during the Annual Boerne Friends of Scouting Breakfast.
Located about 30 miles northwest of San Antonio, the Cibolo Nature Center is 100 acres of Hill Country trails and wilderness. The center and its overseers, The Friends of the Cibolo Wilderness, are dedicated to promoting conservation of natural resources through education and stewardship.
