Join us for a conservation adventure with Galveston Bay Foundation and the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD) to remove abandoned crab traps from Galveston Bay. From February 19 to February 28 of 2021, Texas waters will be closed to crab trapping. During this closure period, good Samaritans will remove lost and derelict crab traps from Galveston Bay.
For this event we need boats on the water in Bolivar. Jobs will be available on land as well to unload and smash the traps. The best kind of boat for this work is low-profile and a power boat. Boaters who are willing to help, please complete the ABC-Houston form (here).
The Galveston Bay Foundation has an online form to help them manage volunteers and know what vessel types will be assisting. We will be attending “Bolivar” as the site. Please go online and also register with Galveston Bay Foundation as well using their online form.
