RIO BRAZOS CHAPTER of the Texas Master Naturalists presented Fossil Rim Wildlife Center with a $1,000 donation on Monday to help the park with the replacement of trees lost and damaged in the storms of April 10. More than 400 trees were destroyed by the high winds and since insurance will not cover the cost to replace the trees, the local organization stepped up to assist Fossil Rim.

The Rio Brazos Chapter challenges other civic organizations to make a donation to Fossil Rim which expects it will take up to five years and $30,000 to replace the trees lost in the devastating storm.
