Wetland Center

The John Bunker Sands Wetland Center is excited to announce that President Jacob Sands was nominated as one of four finalists for the 2011 Budweiser Conservationist of the Year Award!  He will receive $5,000 from Budweiser and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to be directed towards conservation including education and research funding for the Wetland Center.

Along with his family and the North Texas Municipal Water District, Jacob founded the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center, named after his late father, a recognized wetland conservationist in Texas. The Wetland Center is dedicated to passing on the family’s tradition of wildlife conservation.

Thanks to Jacob’s efforts, student groups from surrounding urban areas of Dallas/Fort Worth, wetland researchers and thousands of other visitors will be given a unique opportunity to learn about wildlife and water conservation at one of the largest and most unique constructed wetlands in the United States..
