Southeastern Natural Sciences Academy will use a $50,000 grant from Wells Fargo & Co., to build a wetland feature in Pendleton King Park in Augusta.

The project, which will also involve $50,000 of in-kind services from the Pendelton King Park Foundation, is part of the $3 million Wells Fargo Environmental Solutions for Communities grant program designed to support land and water conservation, energy efficiency, infrastructure and educational outreach.

Jim Blount, President of the Pendleton King Park Foundation, recognizes the important contribution of the project: “The water quality of Lake Elizabeth is very important to the park’s ecosystem and in greater view the Oates Creek Watershed.”
