This summer, TCA is working with Buffalo Bayou Partnership and SPLASh Texas to restore wildlife habitat along Buffalo Bayou and Galveston Bay. We are holding a clean-up event with SPLASh Texas and two habitat restoration events at Buffalo Bayou Park. Please help share the event information with your school members, students, and their parents. I’ve attached our event flyer and here are the details:

Removing litter pollution from this area, we’ll help establish safer habitat for the wildlife in the Galveston Bay Area as well as prevent plastics from entering our interconnected oceans. The ocean is the most vulnerable environment to our plastic waste.
