The South Texas Border Chapter Texas Master Naturalist is supporting the Vannie E. Cook Jr. Children’s Cancer & Hematology Clinic with work installing landscaping plants and materials.  Phase three is in the planning stages.  Approval of some features is necessary before the third phase of the project is scheduled.  Check back for more information.

Phase One

Phase One is Finished!

It took dozens of people, much digging and scraping.  We removed old materials and plants.  A hole was dug for the fountain.  Then the hole was filled with large stones.  A monster stone was installed in the center of the stone and water pond.  The small plants are all new wildlife friendly plants.

Thank you for volunteering to help with the project. 

We need YOU to make this chapter project a success for the children at the center!
