Beach Explorations at GISP
July 13, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Hunt for coastal treasures with state park naturalists.
Beach Exploration hikes begin at the Nature Center (found in the prairie of the park), with restrooms, air conditioning, and new exhibits. After a brief orientation, the group will caravan to the day use beach and regroup at the parking area to pass out equipment for exploration.
Get a close-up look at the many critters and birds that inhabit the sand, surf, and seaweed. This Saturday tour includes hands-on seining, searching for ghost crabs and beachcombing under the guidance of Friends of Galveston Island State Park (FoGISP) volunteers.
