Background on Morgan’s Point Beach Cleanups: In July 2015, a concerned citizen created a social media report on the large amount of trash that had accumulated on the Morgan’s Point beach, a popular fishing spot and ship traffic area. In response, Galveston Bay Foundation worked cooperatively with Port Houston to arrange a volunteer-driven clean-up day. After that effort, there was much local interest in conducting a clean-up at the Morgan’s Point beach annually. Now, GBF, Port Houston, and the Texas General Land Office are all working together to host annual cleanups at Morgan’s Point during National Estuaries Week.
