SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio-based grocery giant H-E-B has announced that it has partnered with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation on a number of conservation efforts across the Lone Star State.

The chain on Tuesday said that with support from Field & Future by H-E-B — an environmentally friendly line of products — money will help the foundation’s goal of protecting wildlife, habitats and natural resources.

Those efforts include coastal conservation along the Texas Gulf Coast and the restoration of black bears in West Texas.

According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, black bears are listed as “threatened” in both Texas and the U.S. Their population dramatically decreased in the 1940s due to overhunting and ranching but they are slowly rebounding, Texas Monthly reported.

H-E-B said it is also supporting the establishment of Palo Pinto Mountains State Park, which is under development about 75 miles west of the North Texas Metroplex.

The 4,871-acre park is slated to open next year and will have hiking, camping, fishing and stargazing opportunities.

The grocery chain added that it donated $135,000 to create a community recycling center in Ingleside and it will kick off an annual donation campaign to benefit EarthShare of Texas.

From April 13-May 24, customers can donate $1, $3 or $5 to the nonprofit online or while checking out in-store.
