City of Pharr

Pharr, TX

Dr. Ambrosio Hernandez

Mayor

Pledge Summary

The City of Pharr is located in deep South Texas and is considered an area of great importance since it is utilized by the monarch butterflies during their migration. This portion of the monarch highway is threatened and conservation in our area is critical for all native plants and animals. This has led us to pledge and continue to commit to helping the native flora and fauna.
