While most of us are getting ready to relax for the weekend and eat dinner, park rangers continue their work and patrol the beaches for critters. We want you to help and join us.
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 the dunes for animals, such as fish, mammals, reptiles, and birds.
How to prepare:
- Get a park registration pass for your vehicle
- Wear shoes able to get into ankle-deep water
- Apply sunscreen, bug spray
- Bring water and camera, for those great evening shots
- Rain or shine (program moved indoors for lightning/thunder)
