The Sibley Nature Center in the Hogan Park sprawling over 49 acres is rich in flora and fauna –in a way, it celebrates nature and life. At the nature center, you will find the realistic taxidermy of the endemic animals, most of which are sighted regularly on the Sibley Trail. The wildlife viewing area is a bird photographer’s paradise while the insect lovers will love to check out the bee colonies from the observatory. The Sibley Nature Center also has a library where you will find plenty of books and journals related to the Llano Estacado region. Animals like Horned Lizards, Draws and Woodrats. Kids will love to see the animals, insects and birds up close while hiking through.

Sibley Nature Center Reviews & Ratings
If you live in Midland you MUST go here at least once, but honestly I come here most Fridays with my two dogs because it's the nicest place to walk in Midland. There isn't much shade or tree coverage (because honestly...it's Midland) so bring your sunscreen! Love the bumble bee garden too! Great place to take your kiddos as well, they have a cute kids activity room inside. :)
We love going here to experience this habitat in its mostly natural state. The kids love noting the differences between our visits/seasons. Civilization peaks through at moments with road noise and the golf course but those really attempting to connect with nature and learn this land will quickly look past these distractions. We were pleased to discover that a homeschool group had taken over care of the kids garden, with great future plans.
Took my son the 1st time over a year ago. Would need to check it out in the spring, I'm sure it's beautiful. I loved that it was native vegetation. Show more of what this place would like if not for Oil and Gas. Friendly to dogs, great for kids.
Though we went when my wife was pregnant and in the dead of summer it was a nice trip to enjoy the West Texas natural view
If you have a chance to visit Sibley after a good rain shower I highly recommened it. There are nice trails and the library has vast knowledge.
