DESCO Volunteers Attend Texas Gatorfest With Galveston Bay Foundation
9/13/14: The 2014 Texas Gatorfest was a success! On Saturday, September 13th, Jackie Gilliam and Errin Bryner brought some helpers with them to volunteer at Galveston Bay Foundation’s booth in the education tent at the festival. There, they helped to promote several GBF programs, including their favorites, the Oyster Reef Restoration Project, the Rain Barrel Program, and the Galveston Bay Report Card program. Kids attending Gatorfest got to write their names or a special message on oyster shells that will eventually become a part of a brand new reef. Festival attendees also participated in an interactive watershed demonstration, where they learned about the effects of pollutants on the Galveston Bay.
