With your help on North Texas Giving Day, we are working to secure funding to help the Heard continue to protect and restore our wetlands, which bear the brunt of pollution and other negative effects that originate upstream. We will also work to increase the Heard wetlands’ already significant viability as a habitat and nesting area for many native bird species. The manpower to accomplish these tasks will be considerable and we will continue to need to keep our supplies and tools in working order. We will also need to acquire new tools and supplies. With these resources, the Heard staff and volunteers will be able to remove invasive plants. We will also be able to put in place natural erosion control methods as well as repair damage from previous floods. Much of this project will also include planting new native plant life to restore what has been damaged by both natural and manmade causes.
Last year, during North Texas Giving Day, the Heard raised over $10,000 in one day. If we meet or exceed that amount this year, we will be able to accomplish many of our planned wetland restoration and preservation projects. Thank you for your support and consideration of our project! With your help we will sustain the Heard’s mission to bring nature and people together to discover, enjoy, experience, restore and preserve our priceless environment.
