This Week Former First Lady Larura Bush Visited the Eagle Ford Shale! PLUS, Our Phase II Update

This week was an exciting one in the Eagle Ford Shale as former First Lady Laura Bush visited the region to discuss conservation efforts in the South Texas oil fields. According to the San Antonio Express News:

She did a rig tour in June with representatives of Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas Wildlife Association and the South Texas Energy & Economic Roundtable. And if you’re surprised that the words “Laura Bush” are colliding in the same sentence as “rig tour,” Bush’s nonprofit, Taking Care of Texas, is all about blending business with environmental responsibility, and has a goal of “safeguarding natural resources with respect for private property interests.

Taking Care of Texas says it is working with the oil and gas industry in the Eagle Ford region on things such as erosion control, native plant reseeding and salvaging topsoil on drilling locations.

“Taking Care of Texas is about building on existing conservation efforts,” said Bush, in a press release. “We are working with developers of the Eagle Ford Shale because it’s important to take care of the landscapes and wildlife habitat where drilling occurs. We want Texas to be a leader in meeting the nation’s energy needs while conserving soil and habitat and boosting the economy in South Texas.”


We think it’s great that she came down to the area! Laura Bush’s visit isn’t the only exciting news we have for the week though. Our Phase II development is still moving along at a great speed and we are almost complete with installing all of our water and sewer lines for the new two bedroom homes that will be arriving soon! These homes will be rented for long-term, short-term and by the night accommodations for workforce housing in the Eagle Ford Shale.
