Marsh Mania 2023

9:00 am-10:00 pm

Join us on September 9th, 2023, for the 25th annual Marsh Mania event! Marsh Mania is a nationally recognized, award-winning community-based marsh restoration event that has been a cornerstone of the Galveston Bay area since its inception in 1999. 

Marsh Mania began as a one-day activity, Marsh Bash, setting a national record with 1,500 volunteers planting nearly 65,000 stems of smooth cordgrass to create 14.5 acres (about twice the area of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool) of new habitat. The success of this event set the foundation for what Marsh Mania is today – an initiative that has restored more than 200 acres (about the total floor space of the Pentagon) of vital salt marsh habitat involving over 8,000 volunteers in its rich history. 

This year, we will gather at the beautiful Candy Abshier Wildlife Management Area from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for a fun-filled day of hands-on marsh planting. Our goal is not only to restore our precious marshlands but also to increase awareness and appreciation of wetland habitats and their functions.  

Volunteers will plant marsh grass at our most popular hands-on conservation event of the year. This event helps restore marsh all around Galveston Bay. Participants will enjoy lunch and giveaways. Please contact our Volunteer Engagement Manager at volunteer@galvbay.org with any questions.
