The Friends of the Wildlife Corridor presented a large check to the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Education Foundation recently.
According to a release, an $8,000 check was given to expand the funds provided to PSJA Teachers, as part of the organization’s Mini-Grants program. The funds are geared to support environmentally friendly projects.
The release added that Friends of the Wildlife Corridor has partnered with PSJA ISD for several years to ensure the preservation of the area’s natural habitat. PSJA ISD schools support the goal by planting butterfly gardens and native plants. The areas are also used as outdoor classrooms and incorporated into daily lessons.
The organization said their overall goal is for PSJA ISD students to become stewards of their local flora and fauna for future generations.
