Galveston Bay Drive & Discover


The ways people have used our estuary's habitats have changed significantly over time, and these changes have been inscribed upon and around the Bay. The Drive & Discover Guide documents some of these changes and their effects on our Bay's habitats. As such, Drive & Discover Guide blends human and natural history. We point out places as diverse as ancient shell middens, early cattle ranches, submerged seagrass meadows, good birdwatching sites, and the first offshore oil rigs in Texas. The Drive & Discover Guide organizes these sites into eight areas. These regions approximate watershed - the flow of water from the mainland to the Bay - but they also reflect how humans have divided the Bay into a series of cultural zones.
