Keep Victoria Beautiful received a grant to help restore The Texas Zoo’s butterfly garden near the entrance of the zoo and that means our Texas Zoo is just going to keep getting and better! Heart and wings a flutter!

Let's chat about the Green Bag Grant 

Keep Victoria Beautiful has received a $1950 Green Bag Grant from Keep Texas Beautiful to help restore the butterfly garden at The Texas Zoo.

The announcement came from the latest City of Victoria civic alert which you can read here.

“Keep Victoria Beautiful is truly a community effort, and we’re excited to be able to partner with The Texas Zoo for this project that will benefit all of Victoria,” said City of Victoria beautification coordinator Christy Youker.

The grant program is sponsored by H-E-B and Central Market. Under the conditions of the grant, the project must be completed by July 2022.

Shout out to HEB!

“We are thankful for sponsors like H-E-B who support our efforts to clean and beautify communities around Texas,” said Keep Texas Beautiful Executive Director Suzanne Kho. “We cannot wait to see the projects our affiliates are able to complete with help from our Green Bag Grants.”

On a side note for years now I have been raising monarch butterflies at the ranch. I love raising eggs to butterflies, it's a spiritual thing for me. Total metamorphosis!
