Increase your understanding of coastal ecosystems and watersheds and how they are affected by manmade and natural disasters. Join your fellow Comets as we complete environmental conservation projects and serve those who suffer the economic impact of these disasters.
Tasks may include native plant propagation, sea grass restoration, wildlife habitat improvement, dune restoration, storm water treatment, public land restoration and invasive species removal.
Prior to this trip, most of the group members knew nothing more about environmental conservation than using the blue-topped recycling cans around campus. The Galveston Bay Foundation was more than amazing when it came to educating us in the preservation of the Galveston bay and how it is a community effort.
