Environmental Committee members, L. to R., Ken Wright, Chairman Barbara Fratila, Tom Ronayne, Fred Kanter and John Moore, property owner.
On December 13, 2013, members of the Friends of the River San Bernard Environmental Committee met with John Moore, son of Edwin Dyer Moore, for the signing of the Second Amendment to the Deed of Conservation Easement that added 35 acres to the easement held by Wetlands America Trust, Inc. on behalf of Ducks Unlimited. Funds for the acquisition of the acreage came from payments made to the FOR Natural Area Acquisition Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) approved by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
105 acres of the Moore property, adjacent to the San Bernard river, are covered by the conservation easement.
