Facility Rentals

The Cibolo Nature Center or Herff Farm is the perfect place to rent for your upcoming wedding, private party, or corporate meeting.  Quiet, relaxed, elegant and informal, the CNC&F will exceed your expectations for your next event.

The Auditorium features a kitchen for use by caterers, a welcoming hearth during cool weather and sliding glass doors that open to wide covered porches with vistas of the surrounding beautiful Cibolo Natural Area. The Herff Farm Historic Home and grounds is also a lovely place to hold an event.  The CNC&F can accommodate almost any function, as we offer indoor and multiple outdoor options for truly memorable events.  We are both corporate and family friendly.

We encourage and welcome you to visit our facility, as “seeing is believing!” Contact us at 830-249-7230 or email Ariel Cummins for all the details and to schedule your personal tour.

All proceeds from the rental of our venues help to support our environmental education programs, research, and conservation and preservation work of the Cibolo Nature Center & Farm.


The Cibolo Nature Center and Herff Farm are amazing venues that are flexible enough to adapt to most any bride’s dream day.  Indoor and outdoor spaces can seamlessly transform into your rustic, elegant wedding and/or reception.  Mother Nature has done much of the decorating for you-- setting the scene to create a natural and beautiful environment for making a lifetime of memories on your special day.

Due to the Cibolo Nature Center & Farm’s own environmental education programming, weddings are only scheduled on weekends.  The fee is $2500 for a wedding event.

We plan these events around our own programming and previously booked rental events.

Corporate Meetings / Events

Consider all the possibilities for getting away from your typical work week setting to conduct your next corporate planning or training meeting, holiday party or company picnic at the Cibolo Nature Center or Herff Farm. Imagine the inspiration and ideas to be generated from a 15 minute hike along our trails and creek after a breakout meeting session! We have accommodations to suit small or large groups.
