America’s Boating Club Houston promotes the Geodetic Mark Program in coordination with NOAA’s National Geodetic Survey (NGS) by reporting status on geodetic markers in the Greater Houston Metroplex area.
This is our first ever group geodetic mark activity!
The Squadron will meet in Galveston for a short briefing on how the activity is done, kits will be distributed, then off to locate geodetic markers! All information about where and how to locate a marker, then document the effort, will be provided.
Afterwards, there will be an activity onboard a dolphin safe tour boat. The 45-minute tour brings you up close to view dolphins in their natural habitat and see part of the Port of Galveston. After the dolphin tour, we will gather for dinner at a local restaurant.
If you have any questions about the event, please contact Lt./C Amy Taylor.
The initial meeting location is Galveston Kroger. All other locations will be emailed and handed out during the briefing. If you are not going for the Geodetic Marker event, but just the tour and/or dinner, the location information will be emailed to you.
