The Texas Botanical Gardens and Native American Interpretive Center, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that grew out of a shared vision of a community cultural and educational facility that would showcase and celebrate the hunter-gatherers who inhabited the Mills County region of central Texas, their nomadic lifestyle and their use of resources and plants. The Center is envisioned as a model “green” museum offering an authentic and unique living history experience that attracts families, students, researchers and tourists from the local region, around Texas and, ultimately, the nation and the world.
Jan Fischer, a retired science teacher who founded the Center in 2004, is joined by a diverse and talented group of community volunteers that includes teachers, bankers, ranchers, scholars, lawyers, and business managers who, with guidance and support from the project team and advisors are working to realize the vision for the Center. Significant progress has been made by engaging and mobilizing local citizens, government entities, businesses, non–profits and field experts. However, more needs to be done. You can play a vital role in helping us reach our goal. Please join us today in supporting the Center as a volunteer, member and/or donor.
