On October 27, 2007, twenty-five students from Dr. Juliet V. Garcia Middle School assisted with tree planting at the Bahia Grande Unit of the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge.  The students planted 1,500 black mangrove seedlings, which they have been nurturing at their school pond.  Materials for propagating the seedlings were donated the by JASON Project University of Texas Brownsville/Texas Southernmost College.  The mangroves were planted near the site of a future scenic outlook on State Highway 48, along 75 meters of beach on each side of a small peninsula.
