RESTORE Galveston Bay Foundation’s restoration programs protect and restore the Bay’s natural resources.
1.5 acres of marsh restored with smooth cordgrass at sites in Anahuac, Beach City, Galveston and Texas City
4,400 new oysters raised and transplanted from 223 oyster gardens to Galveston Bay reefs
EACH BUSINESS THAT PROVIDED OYSTER SHELLS TO THIS PROJECT PLAYED A VITAL ROLE IN ITS SUCCESS. INDIVIDUALLY, THOSE BUSINESSES WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BUILD THIS REEF, BUT BY WORKING TOGETHER WITH THE GUIDANCE OF GALVESTON BAY FOUNDATION, THE PROJECT IS COMPLETE AND THE REEF PROVIDES ENHANCED ECOLOGICAL BENEFITS TO THE BAY.” – Bill Baker, Contractor for Dickinson Bay oyster reef restoration project (pictured above)
Thank you for making these positive contributions in Galveston Bay.
