Turtle Patrol at Galveston Island State Park

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 Galveston Island State Park on August 11 at 6:30 p.m. to search for Kemp’s Ridley Turtles. 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 at Galveston Island State Park. You will take a stroll down the beach and explore the dunes for animals, such as fish, mammals, reptiles, and birds. Meet at the day use picnic area of the park and begin a short hike down the beach and through the dunes, patrolling for turtles on this easy, evening beach hike. Families, groups, and pets on a leash are welcome.
