We believe that a person should be very familiar with their own home -- for it is the framework for patriotism. We give programs about the history and ecology of the Llano Estacado, and have a website (www.sibleynaturecenter.org) with over 425 essays about west Texas and over 2500 photographs in over 90 photoessays that show the world what can be found in west Texas. We are presently engaged in adding to our facility and trails via a succesful capital campaign, including a $500,000 challenge grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
We celebrate the ecology and history of the Llano Estacado and the surrounding region.
The trail was built in 1980, and the building built in 1986. Until 2006 the Sibley Center was administered by the Midland Soil and Water Conservation District, but now a board of directors drawn from the West Texas community now governs the organization.
