CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department has initiated efforts to restore the Blucher Park native landscape through the selective clearing of invasive plant populations. The work began on January 6 and will continue for approximately four weeks. The efforts will focus on creating a balanced, safe, beautiful and all-encompassing natural resource. The enhancements will regain the natural parkland utilized by migrating bird populations and foster bird activity to be enjoyed by residents and visitors of Corpus Christi’s eco-tourism driven economy.

The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department and American Conservation Experience, a non-profit organization which assists land managers in resolving land management issues and provides transferable and professional experience to young adults passionate in resource management, are working collaboratively to restore Blucher Park.
