Nature Park Committee Takes Shape

by Tony Vindell/LFN

A committee to oversee the city’s Nature Park off North Arroyo Boulevard is in its developing stages and members have been appointed thus far by the city council.

Councilmen James Herrera and Jesus Garcia are the committee’s new members, while Daniel Alvarez was named substitute in case Garcia turns down the selection.

One of the committee goals will be to oversee the creation of a butterfly and bird garden at the park.

During a previous council meeting, Herrera said such a garden will be a major tourist attraction for wildlife enthusiasts.

The Rio Grande Valley is at the center of monarch butterflies which migrate from Canada to the Mexican state of Michoacan usually in early fall.

Also, hundreds of bird species have been identified in the area, some of which, such as the green jay and the plain chachalaca, are only seen in this part of the country.

Los Fresnos resacas and vegetation are ideal places for bird and butterflies, so is the city’s Nature Park.
