Turtle Patrol at Galveston Island State Park

While most of us are getting ready to relax for the weekend and eat dinner, park rangers at Galveston Island State Park continue their work and patrol the beaches for critters. Join them July 27 at 6:00 p.m. at the beach. 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. 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 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. There is an entry fee into the state park but the hike is free.
