Wildscape Demonstration Garden

The Wildscape Demonstration Garden is a partnership between the Alamo Area Master Naturalists, the San Antonio Parks and Recreation – River Operations Department, and Texas Parks and Wildlife.

signThe garden-park is used by strolling tourists, downtown workers, and residents.  Migrating and resident animals find a welcome home in this urban garden. The river provides a natural water source; a food source is provided by the berries, flowers and plantings; while the trees and shrubs provide nesting areas and cover for the birds and small animals.

Visitors wander the garden and learn about the native and adapted plants from the accompanying signage.  The garden is also used by different groups as a teaching environment.

The Wildscape Demonstration Garden has received a Local Award, “Keep San Antonio Beautiful” and a National Award, the Audubon Society’s – “Habitat Hero’s”.  AAMN members provided most of the labor for the project and provide continuing maintenance for it. Financial support is provided by the Chapter.
