Turtle Patrol

Citizen scientists needed for turtle patrol and hike.

During the warm nesting season, park rangers conserve habitat, eliminate trash, and patrol the beaches for critters. We want you to help our endangered sea turtles and join us.

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. We will take a stroll down the beach and explore ways to help the environment.

We will 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, beach hike. Families, groups, and pets on a leash are welcome.


Where: Day use picnic area to begin

Who: Park Ranger Lisa Reznicek is inviting everyone to join

Before you can join us:
• Park entry fee paid before trip (park permit on vehicle)
• All children must be accompanied by an adult

What to expect:
• Great family fun for all ages.
• Prepared for physical activity
• Small group instruction and guide
• 1 hour program of games, activities, and short hike
• Restrooms available

PENN & TELLER @ Jones Hall

PENN & TELLER @ Jones Hall | Houston | Texas | United States

PENN & TELLER

Penn and Teller have redefined the genre of magic while inventing their own distinct niche of comedy for nearly 40 years. From sold out runs on Broadway to Emmy-winning TV specials, Penn and Teller show no signs of slowing down with their comedic acts. As individuals, they are just as prolific. Teller directed a version of Macbeth that toured the East Coast to raves from The New York Times and Wall Street Journal and co-wrote and directed the Off-Broadway thriller “Play Dead.” Penn has written three books, including the 2011 New York Times Best Seller, “God No!”, hosted the NBC game show Identity and donned his ballroom shoes for the 2008 season of ABC’s hit Dancing With The Stars. The comical duo will have the audience laughing the night away in Jones Hall.
