Families and interested citizens needed for turtle-centric beach hike.

You can become a citizen scientist, and help the park to understand more about the Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle, an endangered species that nests Galveston Island State Park. We will take a stroll down the beach and explore ways to help the environment. NOTE: sea turtles may not be present on the beach when you’re here, but need human help for survival.

We will meet at the day use beach area and begin a short hike, patrolling for turtles on this easy, beach hike. Families, groups, and pets on a leash are welcome.
