GBF partners with Clear Lake City Water Authority to convert former golf course to nearly 200-acres of conserved green space in Clear Lake
he Galveston Bay Foundation (GBF) is excited to be partnering with the Clear Lake City Water Authority and the Exploration Green Conservancy on a new conservation project sharing the conservancy’s name, “Exploration Green”. Exploration Green is a multi-phase project that will convert the old Clear Lake Golf Course into a 178 acre multi-use area for the benefit of Clear Lake area residents and visitors. The project will create lakes and wetlands to catch storm water runoff, reducing area flooding and cleansing water before it enters the Galveston Bay estuary. The area will also be developed with jogging trails, athletic fields, and other outdoor recreation amenities for the community. Restoration will be conducted to restore native wildlife habitats throughout the project area, including planting a variety of native trees and grasses. Recently accredited as a Land Trust Accredited Organization, GBF will hold a
conservation easement over the land, which will permanently protect the area against future real estate development and ensure this property is maintained as open space for outdoor recreation, wildlife habitat, and water quality. Both Exploration Green and the Clear Lake City Water Authority were awarded the 2013 Planning Award by the Houston-Galveston Area Council (HGAC) this past January for comprehensive planning of the flood control, recreation, and conservation area in the Clear Lake area. Furthermore, HGAC ranked the conservation project as one of the top nine public space development plans in the Houston region. Please join GBF and other project partners at the Exploration Green ground-breaking ceremony on Saturday, April 12. For more information on the project, visit www.explorationgreen.org

From Our President:
Understanding the RESTORE Act
he Deepwater Horizon BP oil spill was a large scale environmental disaster that significantly impacted the Gulf, the people who live along the Gulf, and the wildlife in and along the shore of the Gulf across five states, including Texas. The direct impacts to the Texas shoreline were fairly limited as compared to the four other Gulf States, but certainly our shared Gulf resources were impacted. Recovery has been slow and steady in many areas and will continue for years.

Young Professionals Plant Trees to Improve Conservation Property
n Saturday, February 1, a group of young professionals gathered along Turtle Bayou in Chambers County to improve habitat by planting 145 trees on a Galveston Bay Foundation (GBF) conservation easement property owned by the Chambers-Liberty Counties Navigation District. The trees for the planting were provided by the Apache Corporation Tree Grant Program. The Cast, is a membership-based group helping to fulfill GBF’s mission to preserve, protect, and enhance Galveston Bay. Through involvement in The Cast, young professionals raise awareness of the importance of the Bay and become young leaders in our conservation community. GBF would like to thank all Cast members who joined in the effort and continue to be young stewards of a healthier Galveston Bay. For more information on The Cast or to join, visit www.galvbay.org/thecast.html.
San Jacinto River Waste Pits Site Update
he Galveston Bay Foundation continues our efforts to provide information to the public on the San Jacinto River Waste Pits Superfund Site (SJRWP). The SJRWP is an abandoned waste pit on the west bank of the San Jacinto River immediately upstream of the Interstate 10 bridge. The site contains paper mill wastes contaminated with dioxins, an extremely toxic family of compounds which can cause cancer and other serious illness in humans. It was placed in the U.S. EPA Superfund Program in 2008. Since our last update in the Fall 2013 issue of the Gazette, there has been some progress. The Remedial Investigation (RI) was completed by the responsible parties, McGinnis Industrial Maintenance Corporation and International Paper Company, under direction from U.S. EPA. The RI characterized the nature and extent of the contamination and also determined whether the contamination presents a significant risk to human health or the environment. As we reported in the Fall issue, the pathways that humans could be exposed to the dioxins from this site were: (1) direct contact with the waste material, (2) accidental ingestion of waste material, and (3) by eating seafood that has been contaminated by the dioxin. Since the placement of an “armored cap” on the pits in 2011, the remaining pathway is through seafood consumption.
The possible reasons for the delay are the addition of the southern pits in the scope of work and the back and forth between EPA and responsible parties as the latter submits draft data and reports to the EPA for review. As a result, the proposed plan for cleanup, and your opportunities to comment, will also be delayed. GBF will keep you and all Galveston Bay stakeholders and the general public informed on the revised schedule as soon as it becomes available from the EPA. Regardless of the date that the proposed plan comes out, there will be a minimum 30-day public comment period. Many technical reports have been produced by the responsible parties as required in an RI/FS. Through a grant from the EPA, GBF contracted with HARC (Houston Advanced Research Center) to produce summary reviews of the technical reports, which we have placed on our SJRWP webpage at http://galvbay. org/advocacy_sjrwp.html. These summaries provide the layman with an explanation of the technical cleanup documents produced by the responsible parties. You can stay informed on the SJRWP cleanup schedule and meetings, read HARC’s summary documents, and learn more by visiting GBF’s SJRWP webpage at http://galvbay.org/ advocacy_sjrwp.html.
The Feasibility Study (FS), which focuses on the development of specific response alternatives for addressing contamination at a site, i.e. the possible permanent clean-up solutions, was to be completed in January 2014 but is lagging behind the currently published schedule.

Back the Bay Tour Allows Students to Experience the Big Picture of Water Quality
tudents from Ball High School’s aquatic science classes took a day-long journey from upper to lower Galveston Bay, exploring the various ways that humans and the environment interact and to see how these interactions might impact water quality. Grasping the complexities of the Galveston Bay watershed – the land area where water flows over or under and into a common place, such as a stream, lake, or bay – is best done from a firsthand perspective. GBF’s Advocacy Team hopes to accomplish this through their newly developed Back the Bay tours. These tours provide an opportunity to foster citizen advocates by allowing them to see that they are “more connected to Galveston Bay than [they] think” (www.backthebay.org). The students took in the sites of Upper Galveston Bay at Bayland Marina in Baytown while conducting a watershed survey, measuring salinity, and collecting trash along the shoreline. They discovered diverse uses including the freshwater inflows of the San Jacinto River, fiddler crab homes on a manmade jetty, large ships passing through the Houston Ship Channel, and storm drains in the parking lot. The views from Pine Gully Park in Seabrook were enjoyed by all and provided a great spot for searching out wildlife including waterbirds, fish, and a snake! The students learned about the long history of silting and flushing out of sediment in Pine Gully and how this and the changing salinities have impacted vegetation in the area.
the biological and chemical processes that treat water before it goes back into the bay. A special thanks to Texas City Public Works for the excellent tour. The students ended their day at GBF’s Texas City Preserve where they learned of the many benefits that oyster reefs provide for Galveston Bay and helped bag recycled oyster shell for future restoration projects. Sherrie Krause, Ball High School’s aquatic science teacher, expressed that “one of the greatest things about the tour was watching the students interact with nature. It was amazing to see them excited about a small school of fish or the possibility of seeing an alligator. I think we sometimes forget how much they need opportunities to experience nature. Once they have those experiences, they will care and they will want to protect it. Many of them are very excited about volunteering now for some of the Galveston Bay Foundation volunteer opportunities.” Check out more fun trip photos taken by these students on Instagram by searching for #backthebay, #GBFCleanWater, or #GalvestonBayFoundation. For more information on this program, contact Charlene Bohanon at firstname.lastname@example.org. This project is funded in part by a grant from the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Urban Water Small Grant program.
The next stop brought the students up close and personal with the wastewater treatment process. They especially “enjoyed” the smells at the beginning of their tour while learning about

SPOTLIGHT ON: Apache Corporation and Tree Grant Program
n each issue of the Gazette, GBF enjoys spotlighting one of the many individuals, organizations, or corporations that help us work toward our mission of preserving, protecting, and enhancing Galveston Bay. In this issue, we are pleased to spotlight the Apache Corporation and its Tree Grant Program. According to Apache, “The Apache Corporation Tree Grant Program focuses on improving wildlife habitats, restoring storm damage, and enhancing cities and neighborhoods. Since 2005, Apache has awarded 3.7 million trees to nonprofit institutions and communities across 16 U.S. states through grants from the Apache Foundation, our philanthropic affiliate. Apache employees and family members regularly volunteer their time to help plant trees donated by the company.” All donated trees are native to the areas where they are planted and significantly improve the environment and the quality of life in these communities.
projects on GBF’s preserves surrounding the Galveston Bay estuarine complex. These tree planting events have been designed to enhance native habitats for resident and migratory wildlife. Sweetwater Preserve, a 450-acre property on Galveston Island, consists mostly of native prairie and salt marsh habitats. Live oak and sugarberry trees were planted as part of a GBF Wildlife Work Day to attract and provide forage for neotropical birds along their annual migration route.
Turtle Bayou Preserve, a 511acre property in Chambers County near Anahuac, possesses a large freshwater wetland complex adjacent to Lake Anahuac and Turtle Bayou. This wetland was supplemented with bald GBF staff member Matthew cypress and live oak trees, as Abernathy plants a tree provided well as buttonbush, with the by Apache Corporation at GBF’s hopes of creating a year round Sweetwater Preserve. rookery for wading birds and water birds that are common in the area.

and as a result, lost many of its trees from the inundation of salt water. Willow oak and live oak trees were planted as part of a larger restoration project that included shoreline protection and marsh creation. Trees were used to restore the natural forest community and provide habitat for migratory bird species and resident wildlife that utilize this unique area. Obie O’Brien, Apache VP of Governmental Affairs, explains why Apache supports these efforts. “At Apache Corporation, we’ve always understood the value in preserving the local environment where our employees and families live and work and on which they rely on every day. We are happy to give back to the environment by partnering with GBF and donating these trees that will improve Galveston Bay habitat.” These restoration projects make a significant difference in the health of the Galveston Bay estuary and contribute to the well-being of wildlife species that thrive along the Texas Gulf Coast. Apache Corporation’s Tree Grant Program provides vital support not only to these GBF projects but to an abundance of other worthy projects in Houston, Galveston, and throughout the United States. GBF looks forward to a continued partnership with Apache Corporation as we work together for the benefit of Galveston Bay.
First Ever Eco-Hero Volunteer Award Given to GBF Volunteer
he Galveston Bay Foundation began a partnership with the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System Regional Association (GCOOS) in 2012 and has since begun collaboration on a cohesive, Gulf of Mexico-wide data viewer for citizen-collected water quality data. Through this fruitful partnership, GCOOS has announced the very first recipient of their new Eco-Hero Volunteer Award, which honors outstanding citizen scientists around the Gulf of Mexico. GBF’s Water Quality Team was extremely proud to present the Eco-Hero Volunteer Award to one of our own dedicated volunteers, David Bulliner, at Bravos for the Bay on January 16, 2014. David Bulliner has contributed to the betterment of the Gulf of Mexico through his volunteerism
as a GBF Bacteria Lab Assistant and a certified Texas Stream Team Water Quality Monitor and through his involvement with the Galveston Bay Area Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists, among many other things. Chris Simoniello, GCOOS Education and Outreach Coordinator stated, “GCOOS is committed to enhancing the health and economic sustainability of the Gulf, and volunteer efforts like David’s exemplify the power of individuals…” This award does not only acknowledge David’s exceptional volunteer water quality monitoring services, but serves to thank him for his exemplary citizenship. Thank you, Dave, for contributing information for the benefit of all who live, work, and play in Galveston Bay!

Report card to provide information on the health of the Bay GBF and HARC (Houston Advanced Research Center) are partnering to provide citizens the new Galveston Bay Report Card that will feature critical information on the health of Galveston Bay, one of the most important and productive bays in the country. Through a generous $720,000 grant from Houston Endowment, the Galveston Bay Report Card will provide the public with citizen-driven, science-based measures to assess the health of the bay. The report card will discuss topics such as the status of key habitats (e.g. wetlands, seagrass, oyster reefs), fish and wildlife populations, trends in water quality of local bayous and the bay, and impacts of coastal change and sea level rise. The goal of the Galveston Bay Report Card, scheduled to be released in early 2015, is to promote the conservation of Galveston Bay’s natural resources and to increase public participation in the creation of and support for management strategies that protect the Bay.
Update on GBF’s Seafood Consumption Advisory Education Campaign
s we previously reported in the last issue of the Gazette, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) removed the seafood consumption advisory on spotted seatrout (speckled trout) for most of the Galveston Bay system, including a portion of Upper Galveston Bay and all of Trinity, Lower Galveston, East, West, Chocolate, Drum, Bastrop, and Christmas bays. Unfortunately, not all of the news was good. The advisory covering all species of fish and blue crab on the Houston Ship Channel, San Jacinto River, and contiguous waters was extended from Highway 90 upstream to the Lake Houston Dam on the San Jacinto and from Lynchburg Ferry further downstream to Highway 146 (Fred Hartman Bridge) on the Houston Ship Channel. GBF responded by replacing signs that we previously placed on the stretch of the Houston Ship Channel from the ferry down to the Fred Hartman Bridge with new signs that reflect the current advisory language. The signs that were rendered obsolete in the new advisory area can still be utilized in the upper portion of Upper Galveston Bay. In fact, we utilized some of these
signs for placement at Seabreeze Park in La Porte. GBF has placed additional signs on River Road and River Terrace Park in the vicinity of the San Jacinto River Waste Pits in Channelview, as well as on Vince Bayou at North Richey Street in Pasadena in late February/early March. Vince Bayou is a tributary of the Houston Ship Channel upstream of the confluence with the San Jacinto River. All of these locations are frequented by subsistence and recreational fishermen. We are working with local governments to have more signs placed on the Houston Ship Channel/ San Jacinto River and contiguous waters and on Upper Galveston Bay as soon as possible. We also updated both our English and Spanish language versions of our companion Seafood Consumption Advisory webpage so that citizens have the latest information in easy to understand language. Finally, GBF will continue to call for more robust communication by DSHS and Texas Parks and Wildlife to citizens about seafood advisories. For more information, please see GBF’s Seafood Consumption Advisory webpage at http:// galvbay.org/advocacy_seafood.html.
Volunteers Enjoyed an Evening of Praise by Moonlight at Bravos for the Bay Appreciation Event On the evening of January 16, nearly 100 volunteers were showered with thanks at the Texas Corinthian Yacht Club as they delighted in food and fun at Bravos for the Bay. The year 2013 was a success preserving, protecting, and enhancing Galveston Bay thanks to generous volunteer support. Without volunteers, the following 2013 achievements would not have been made: •
A total of 300 volunteers planted 1.25 acres of fringing marsh with 36,750 plants in Chambers County and Galveston County.
GBF’s Water Monitoring Team spent a collective 1,180 hours collecting and testing water quality samples from Galveston Bay and Clear Lake.
Over 600 volunteers collected 6,000 pounds of waste and 3,200 pounds of recyclable material around a 40 mile area of Armand Bayou.
Nearly 300 volunteers bagged, transported, and placed around 3,000 oyster bar bags, or roughly 50 tons of oyster shell, along the shoreline of Sweetwater Nature Preserve in Galveston.
For all of 2013, close to 2,000 volunteers donated a total of 7,850 hours of time to GBF programs and projects. Special thanks and recognition was given to the following volunteers at Bravos for the Bay: David Bulliner Fred and Diane Grube Amber Faubion Cindy Liening Diane Humes Gary Bell Glen Graves Madeleine Barnes
