Galveston Bay Estuary Program


The need for preservation in a rapidly expanding urban area has been recognized as a major factor in the demise of our natural resources in the Galveston Bay area. The growth and development in this region has not only taxed the natural resources but also the financial resources. Municipal dollars are widely stretched to provide police, fire protection and infrastructure to the community; thus, there is little left to cover the cost of acquisition in order to preserve these natural resources. Clear Creek is one of the most endangered rivers in the United States due to the rapid growth in this region. .... Over the past two years these projects have had a common thread of many different partners working in many different ways toward a common goal. This presentation will focus on these partnerships.
