Rio Grande Valley Wildlife

Over the last 300 years the riverside woodlands have been reduced by 95 percent.  Through a concerted effort by government agencies and private organizations a woodland corridor is being reestablished.   A start has been made and much is to be done, but the results are already impressive.
Three miles from Green Gate Grove, the North American Butterfly Association (NABA) has initiated phase one of a $22 million dollar project. Supported by the State of Texas, many corporate and private financial supporters and an 84 acre donation by Bentsen Palm, LLP the Woodland Edge Butterfly Park is well under way. Plans for the completed project include a Visitor Center and an Education facility to complement the 100 acres of plantings specifically for the great variety of butterflies that frequent the area.
