1ST SATURDAY BOLIVAR FLATS BEACH RAMBLES

Walking on Bolivar Flats

Come explore Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary and see what the forces of nature have left for us on the beach and in the wrack lines with Sanctuaries Manager Pete Deichmann.

Ride the Galveston ferry, see dolphins, birds, shellfish and learn about coastal ecosystems.
