Joan Batman Nature’s Boutique

Natures Boutique Hours

The South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center is one of Corpus Christi’s five major attractions, and a leading South Texas nature tourism destination.

When you check in in the Visitors Center, the first thing you’ll notice is you’re standing in the Joan Batman Nature’s Boutique, full of unique and creative merchandise lines with reasonable prices. And we’ve expanded and remodeled, too. You’ll find items for your adult family and friends, as well as kids on your list. Beautiful umbrellas and totes, several sizes and varieties of turtles and frogs, butterflies, hummingbirds, excellent of gardening and nature books, wood carvings, jewelry, bird feeders and a whole wall of tee-shirts and hats. But not the ones you’ll find at the mall or souvenir shops! You’ll love our line of fused glass—beautifully designed glass bowls, birdbaths and side tables! Small gifts, large gifts, garden and patio décor, and when you’re out of ideas—gift memberships! There’s countless inexpensive kids’ stuff, great selection of wind chimes, and the list goes on . . .

When new 2000 sq-foot Education Station opened, classes, meetings and parties moved there, and Resident Reptiles took over the back room! After visiting with our reptile and amphibian friends, stroll over to Education Station to see the new classroom and party facilities, and Jack & Betty Prentiss global butterfly collection.
