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.
We learned the importance of replenishing and maintaining what we take from the Earth. The work we helped with during our time in Galveston will not only benefit us now but for future generations to come.
