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
