You can help the park and understand more about the Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle, an endangered species that nests Galveston Island State Park. They will take a stroll down the beach and explore ways to help the environment.

They 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.
