First annual Beach and Bay Play Day at Galveston Island State Park

On March 29, the Friends of Galveston Island State (FoGISP) hosted its first annual Beach and Bay Play Day. This event was designed to showcase the Park and the diversity of activities that can be enjoyed here.
It was an overwhelming success, with more than 500 participants experiencing the Park and its many treasures.
Key to this success was the active involvement of 60 local Master Naturalist volunteers who led or participated in activities and overall logistics. Everywhere you looked there were Master Naturalists registering visitors, leading beach/bay/interpretive walks, kayaking and angling, manning crab and Nature Learning Center activities, taking pictures and more.
To paraphrase one of the kids who participated, “this day rocked!”
