Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center reviews
The exhibits are closed at this time, but we have been through them before, and it is very informative. When all the restrictions are lifted, I would recommend a visit! more »
This is a must stop for all those driving through. Unbelievable gift shop with a great selection of regional goods as well as interesting and informative theme items for the area. So much fun! Its a great stop - bathrooms, picnic and walk through their indoor museum. They also have a small garden with a lot of the natural fauna displayed. With little ones I really appreciate the amenities and all the goodies to look over.
Too many visitors to Big Bend Ranch State Park skip the opportunity to walk through the Environmental Education Center located just behind the Barton Warnock Visitor Center. ⚠️ BIG MISTAKE! If you have any interest at all in the distinctive flora (especially 🌵 cacti) of West Texas and the wider Chihuahua Desert — and who doesn't? — then you will surely enjoy a relaxed stroll through the carefully planted, clearly labelled, and well-maintained walkways and hillock behind the Center, where you can view close up a tremendous variety of local cactus, shrubbery, small trees and other plant life endemic to the whole region — all gathered together in this one compact, xeriscaped display. Some of the less common plants displayed here you may otherwise never run across in an initial or even later visit to Big Bend — so see (and photograph) them here. Learn a few of their names so you can impress your friends when hiking through the parks. Offering good views of the Lajitas area, the eastern end of the state park, and the adjacent Mexico border region, you may well fine yourself wanting to spend at least a couple hours here.
