CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Parks and Recreation Department will use grant funds to begin restoring Hans & Pat Suter Wildlife Refuge native landscape by selective clearing of invasive plant populations from the 72-acre park. The work will begin January 6th and continue for approximately 5 weeks. The efforts will focus on creating a balanced, safe, beautiful and all-encompassing natural resource that may be utilized fully by wildlife, residents and Corpus Christi’s eco-tourism driven economy.

The City of Corpus Christi’s Parks and 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, have partnered to restore Hans Suter Wildlife Refuge’s native landscape.
