Bolivar Beach Cleanup

Saturday, September 28,  9:00- Noon

Meet at the vehicle barrier. We provide gloves and bags. Please bring your own refillable water bottles. These cleanups provide great opportunities to witness the wildlife of Bolivar, the activity on the ship channel, and experience hands-on conservation by keeping our beaches clean. Beach parking permits are not required during cleanups. Meet us at the vehicular barrier located on the beach approximately 3/4 mile west of Rettilon Rd. in Port Bolivar. Email Pete Deichmann at pdeichmann@houstonaudubon.org if you have any questions. All ages are welcome. Hope to see you there.


Work Party at Dos Vacas

Thursday, October 24, 2019,  9 AM - Noon

Houston Audubon is planning a workday at Dos Vacas  Muertas Bird Sanctuary on the west end of Galveston Island on October 24, 2019.

If you plan to attend, please bring your own refillable water bottle. Email Pete Deichmann at pdeichmann@houstonaudubon.org for more information if you are interested in helping us. Hope to see you there. 


North Jetty Cleanup

Saturday, November 16, 2019,  9 AM - Noon

The North Jetty at the southeast end of 17th Street in Port Bolivar is adjacent to Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary and is a popular recreation destination. Unfortunately many people who use the jetty aren't good about properly disposing of trash, and it winds up between the rocks of the jetty. High tides float the trash out of the rocks and from there into the sanctuary. It is easiest to get the trash when it is in the jetty. Houston Audubon is planning a cleanup Saturday, November 16, 2019, from 9 AM to Noon to gather the trash and the fishing line that is often such a hazard to our local wildlife, and we could sure use your help. Meet us at the base of the jetty and we will provide you with gloves, trash grabbers, and bags. If you plan to attend please bring your own refillable water bottles, wear sturdy shoes or boots that can get muddy or wet and wear clothing that will protect you from the sun and the mosquitoes (hat, sunglasses, etc.) 

Email Pete Deichmann at pdeichmann@houstonaudubon.org for more information if you are interested in helping us. Hope to see you there. 


High Island Workdays

Workdays are held once a month, October through March on the second Saturday of the month. We start work around 8:30 AM and work until about noon, when we break for lunch, provided by Houston Audubon and prepared by the lunch crew. Lunch at the picnic area of Boy Scout Woods is a good chance to visit with other volunteers and recharge from a morning of exercise and work. After lunch, we take about an hour to tie up any loose ends and clean up. Please bring your own refillable water bottles.

Come be a part of sanctuary maintenance, habitat restoration, and Houston Audubon's amazing volunteer workforce. Email Pete Deichmann at pdeichmann@houstonaudubon.org for more information or to be put on the email list.
