GALVESTON, Inc. (SG) is a community-based, all-volunteer habitat conservation
service organization and Galveston Bay area land trust.
A significant byproduct of
SG's nature preserve is the creation of a spectacular scenic marshland
passage along both sides of the Interstate 45 transportation corridor
leading to Galveston Island and the historic coast of Texas.
SG was formed in 1992 specifically to realize the dream of creating a high-visibility marsh preserve along the highway approach to Galveston Island.
To meet and extend this goal, SG has raised more than $10 million and, to date,
3000 acres of emergent inter-tidal salt marsh and coastal prairie. /bigger>/color>
Ongoing expansion is anticipated. (SG also owns/bigger>/color>
one 20 acre wetland tract on the Island, along Harborside Drive.)
Inside this preserve
complex, we have reconstructed and replanted more than 87 acres of wetland
habitat, and we are in the process of restoring and enhancing 1500 acres of
coastal prairie via invasive species suppression, replanting and other
prairie restoration techniques. Join us!
