2014 Experience

We worked with the Galveston Bay Foundation (GBF) for environmental conservation. We participated in many different projects, ranging from planting and gardening to communicating and raising awareness. As we became immersed in what we did for that day, it became apparent that the guides at GBF were working for something that truly mattered to them. They saw the environment as precious and something to be treasured. Every single plant and organism existing in the bay is there for a reason and serves a specific purpose: to grow and to give life. As we experienced firsthand various ways of service for long hours, from speaking with strangers to building an artificial oyster reef, we witnessed the accumulation of all of our individual efforts that resulted in a greater impact in our environment.
