Quinta Mazatlan is helping to protect woodlands and green space while promoting birding and habitat conservation in the town of McAllen, Texas. The historical adobe mansion houses the Discovery Center, a LEED-certified educational space featuring a science laboratory, a patio and a natural playscape equipped with climbing logs and boulders.
Through a $25,000 donation from the Sun Club, Quinta Mazatlan will be able to utilize the power of the sun and offset its electricity costs with a 7.56 kilowatts solar installation.
The mansion with a mission is helping connect people to the history, beauty and wonder of our natural world.
