Celebrate National Estuaries Week with Artist Boat

Last Updated: September 20, 2021 by Artist Boat | Nature


by Karla Klay, Executive Director of Artist Boat

Estuaries are vibrant places where rivers meet the seas. Galveston Bay is our estuary, and Galveston Island hosts untold numbers of wetlands and wilds. They need your help! Artist Boat is working to save 1,400 acres of precious estuarine ecosystems and has already saved 775 acres as part of the Coastal Heritage Preserve. To help us do this, we are asking One Million people to donate $10 each.

For National Estuaries Week we have been challenged to raise $20,000 in 14 days and it will be matched with $20,000 in memory of Neil Huddleston! So this week, every $10 turns into $20 for land conservation!

Your donation will help save the great natural wild place on Galveston Island.
