Volunteers are the driving force behind the Galveston Bay Foundation, propelling our efforts to ensure a thriving Galveston Bay estuarine system. When you volunteer with us, you’re not just giving your time — you’re gaining invaluable hands-on experience in environmental conservation and restoration, earning service hours, having team building experiences, and deepening your understanding of Galveston Bay.
We believe in the power of community and that everyone can find a way to contribute towards our mission. Please review the volunteer opportunities below to determine how you would like to help. Email email@example.com if you would like more information.
Stay informed and engaged — subscribe to our volunteer email alerts below.
