Want to spend your Spring Break protecting wildlife and wild places? Join us for a Spring Break Adventure working with Galveston Bay Foundation to protect our coastal wetland habitats.

Galveston Bay Foundation's conservation programs focus on wetlands preservation and restoration. The Galveston Bay system has lost over 35,000 acres of wetlands during the last fifty years, and GBF works closely with numerous partners to restore those lost wetlands across the Bay. Wetlands provide habitat for finfish and shellfish as well as rookery and foraging areas for birds. Wetlands filter water and naturally improve water quality, a critical function given the highly urbanized and industrial uses of Galveston Bay. They also stabilize shorelines and provide flood control, benefits that may be even more important to Houston area residents in the current “big storm” era.

We'll spend our time helping GBF protect, preserve and restore these habitats by participating in hands-on conservation projects. We will meet at Gate 8 at the Houston Zoo on Wednesday, March 11 at 7:00am and return by 5:00pm. Be sure to wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and/or wet and are comfortable spending a day working outside in. Also wear a hat and bring sunscreen, bug spray, a lunch, and a reusable water bottle.
