City of Shavano Park

City of Shavano Park, TX

Bob Werner

Mayor

Pledge Summary

The City of Shavano Park is located on the edge of the Texas Hill Country and offers a unique blend of rural small town character with urban conveniences. The City's motto is "City living with Country Charm," a phrase the City lives up to by being a nature and wildlife habitat. The City has committed to saving the Monarch Butterfly by planting the Milkweed plat at City Hall, community garden and municipal buildings. The City also informs the Residents of their ability to contribute by proclaiming April as Monarch Pledge Month in conjunction with the City's annual Arbor Day Celebration.

Community Spotlight

Action Items Committed for 2022

Communications and Convening

  • Issue a proclamation to raise awareness about the decline of the monarch butterfly and the species’ need for habitat. This proclamation must incorporate a focus on monarch conservation.
  • Launch or maintain a public communication effort to encourage residents to plant monarch gardens at their homes or in their neighborhoods. (If you have community members who speak a language other than English, we encourage you to also communicate in that language; Champion Pledges must communicate in that language.)

Program and Demonstration Gardens

  • Host or support a native seed or plant sale, giveaway or swap.
