The Texas Botanical Gardens & Native American Interpretive Center project recently received $7,500 from the Shield-Ayres Foundation. The monies re-ceived are for the Phase I Capital Campaign (development and construction of the botanical gardens). Phase I is now underway. The area to be developed is from the alley forward to Fisher St. and adjacent to the Welcome Center. The application for this grant was completed with the assistance of Central Texas Telephone Cooperative, Inc. Members of the Legacy Plaza board are extremely grateful to the Shield-Ayres Foundation for their continued support of the project’s goals and to Central Texas Telephone Cooperative, Inc. for their assistance.
