QR code for voting in Perk Your Park contest

A project at the Coastal Prairie Chapter’s Seabourne Creek Nature Park in Rosenberg has been selected as one of ten national semifinalists for a $75,000 grant from Niagara Bottling Company’s “Perk Your Park” Contest.

In March of this year, our grant committee members proposed the new “Arboretum at Seabourne Creek” as a project for this grant.  This park enhancement will provide families and school children of Fort Bend County with an educational and fun outdoor environment where they can experience and learn to love nature in a shaded picnic setting.  That project was subsequently selected as one of the 10 national semi-finalists.

Niagara will choose three winners of $75,000 this year, based on the results of a public voting period starting on August 1.   Anyone can vote for Seabourne once per day at:

Vote daily from Aug 1 – Sep 12

If Seabourne wins, the improvements made with the $75,000 grant will include an Arboretum that will transform approximately 6 acres of empty space into a family-friendly educational space with native trees, new paths made of crushed granite, and picnic tables will be nestled along the paths and under the tree canopy.  Construction of these new amenities at the park will be handled through an agreement with our partners the City of Rosenberg and the Rosenberg Development Corporation.  Our chapter members will provide the majority of the labor that’s necessary on the project, and the $75,000 in funding will go towards supplies and materials.

The Perk Your Park Contest from Niagara Bottling Company, is held each year through its charitable program, Niagara Cares, and in partnership with National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA).   The Perk Your Park Contest is part of the Niagara Perk Your Park Project, an initiative that focuses on park and community space revitalization across the country.

Thank you for voting daily for Seabourne starting August 1 through Sept 12!
