Artist Boat, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation seeking volunteers
Volunteers, community members, educators and organizations are asked to assist the Upper Texas Coast Dune Restoration and Outreach Project, which will help with 14 acres of dune restoration.
The project will take place from 8 a.m. to noon on Friday, Feb. 3 and March 4 at Galveston Island State Park, and from 8 a.m. to noon on Feb. 18 at Galveston Island West End.
According to a press release, the project is part of a $70,994 grant that TX Artist Boat was awarded from the NFWF Shell Marine Habitat. The grant involves planting 14 acres, or 10 miles, of sand dune habitat on Follets and Galveston Island.
One of the main goals of the grant is to increase essential habitat for endangered species, or species that are highly migratory in the Gulf of Mexico. The grant is helping rebuild dunes that are vital to the Kemps Ridley Sea Turtle, stabilizing the beach utilized by highly migratory shorebirds and local species that rely on the dune for nesting.
