McAllen partners with UTRGV and Quinta Mazatlan for a new ecology center


McAllen Mayor Jim Darling has announced a new ecology center in partnership with the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and Quinta Mazatlan.

During the Quinta Mazatlan Gala, held this Thursday night, Mayor Darling announced that private and public entries have raised $23 million out of the $35 million needed for the creation of the Ecology hub.

“Our hope is that every school-age child in the Lower Rio Grande Valley will have an opportunity to learn and play at Quinta Mazatlan and I’ve seen them over here, and they just love it,” said Darling.

Darling said that the Ecology hub will also serve as an attraction for eco-tourism in the Rio Grande Valley.
