Beautification Project Receives Grant Funding

We have received a $400 grant in support of our natural area project. In February, we submitted the design of our Monarch Butterfly Waystation for consideration by the Native Plant Society of Texas (NPSOT) for grant funding sponsored by the Bring Back the Monarch to Texas program. We were in competition with many other projects from around the state and we received the maximum grant amount of $400. This is great recognition for our project and the Driftwood community.


The funding is restricted to the purchase of milkweed and nectar plants beneficial to the Monarch butterfly. Members of the Beautification Committee and others purchased and installed plants from various native plant sales in the area. The butterfly waystation has been fenced in the southeast corner of the natural area. Thanks to the DHCS members who participated! Anyone interested in assisting with the continuation of this project should email the committee chair: Venita Fuller.

The committee appreciates the hard work and dedication of Board and RAP members who participated in this project, as well as the cooperation of the neighboring landowner who allowed us access to the site.
