Founders Circle for Cullinan Park Conservancy Reaches 50 Members
Cullinan Park Conservancy (CPC) is pleased to announce that the exclusive “Founders Circle” has reached its goal of 50 members.
Roberta and David Avery closed the circle with their generous gift. The Founders Circle was opened by the Conservancy in October 2017 as a unique fundraising initiative for a special group of park enthusiasts. The Avery’s, as well as all Founders Circle members, will receive permanent recognition at Cullinan Park among other benefits.
Conservancy Board Vice President Susie Goff said, “Not only do these members receive recognition, but also the knowledge that their collective investment will advance our mission of enhancing and protecting the Park.”
Relatively new to Fort Bend County, the Cullinan Park Conservancy is a nonprofit dedicated to capital developments at the 754-acre, Joseph S. & Lucie H. Cullinan Park. The park is located in Sugar Land on Hwy 6, just north of Hwy. 90A. The Conservancy relies on foundation grants, corporate, and individual donations to fund their efforts.
Visitors to the park will experience a wide diversity of landscape and wildlife. Whether it be for a picnic, some quiet fishing or a walk on one of numerous trails, Cullinan Park is a perfect spot to enjoy a day in nature.
Fundraising efforts, including the Founders Circle, are culminating in exciting improvements at the park. The first part of Phase 1 of the 2012 Master Plan is underway. These improvements include a permanent restroom, an overlook at White Lake, a new trail, two new trailheads, interpretive signage, landscape improvements, and understory clearing.
In addition, the Conservancy is currently raising funds for a children’s nature exploration area and a loop trail around White Lake with an additional overlook on the west side. Future improvements identified include additional trails and signage, neighborhood “gateways” and a canoe/kayak launch.
