Galveston Bay: How's it Doing and What Can You Do?

  • Lone Star Groundwater Conservation District 655 Conroe Park North Drive Conroe, TX, 77303 United States (map)

Topic: It's that time already. Sarah Gossett, Water Quality Manager at the Galveston Bay Foundation (GBF) will present an overview of the annual Galveston Bay Report Card. The 2017 report will include information about fisheries, wildlife, habitat, and water quality among other parameters that help us measure the "health of the bay." Sarah will also share information on what each of us can do to improve the Bay. Special focus will be on the Galveston Bay Action Network, a pollution reporting app that allows anyone in the Houston-Galveston area to report any infractions or abuses they might witness. Reports are automatically sent to the proper authority for cleanup. Please join me on Thursday, January 26, to learn more about the bay, its status, and the effect that water conservation has on the bay's health.
