Located in Sonora, Texas Eaton Hill Nature Center and Preserve boasts a unique 37 acre landscape complete with hiking trails, an educational facility operated out of a 110+ year old historic home, interpretive exhibits and more. Whether you're after adventure, education or simple outdoor appreciation, Eaton Hill has you covered.
Situated just between the Edwards Plateau and true West Texas, the acreage at Eaton Hill is truly a living classroom in which to study the botany and fauna of both the Texas Hill Country and the Chihauhuan Desert. 2 miles of hiking trails meander through the 37 acre property and vary from the rocky outcrops of Agave Ridge to the densely wooded and seemingly secret corridors of Zed's Cut. Watch as the landscape transforms with each step.
Interpretive exhibits can be found within the walls of the Nature Center, a fully renovated centurion home. Learn about area wildlife, fossils, geology and more or - bring a picnic lunch - and enjoy sweeping natural vistas from one of two porches. Eaton Hill's exhibits strive to be tactile and tangible, so feel free to handle materials. Our goal is to foster connections to nature through personal discovery.
In keeping with our mission statement, Eaton Hill is proud to offer its facility and grounds for educational or group field trips. For more information or for questions regarding school trips and private events, please contact the nature center.
