A $486,000 donation from EnCana Oil & Gas Inc. to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation allowed for the creation of the Texas Healthy Habitats Grants.
The grants of up to $15,000 are available from the Texas Center for Service-Learning and will support students who do projects that benefit wildlife and the environment, according to a press release. The grants program promotes conservation of endangered species. Applications are due June 19.
EnCana’s donation also helps fund projects involving the preservation of the Toledo Bend Reservoir and the training facility for new game warden in East Texas.
