Galveston Bay Foundation is thrilled to host our annual Bay Day Festival as a virtual event on Saturday, May 15, 2021. This one-day event is a celebration that includes engaging virtual exhibits from a variety of environmental organizations and partners. In addition to virtual exhibits, the Galveston Bay Foundation will go LIVE at scheduled times to showcase the wonders of Galveston Bay.
Explore a Galveston Bay marsh virtually and watch educators use a seine net to collect a variety of aquatic animals. Help them identify them using ID guides while learning more about this amazing ecosystem.
