NestFest 2024 – Follets Island

March 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

From the SPLASH website:

Texas coasts are critical habitats for nesting season. Every Spring, thousands of shorebirds and sea turtles migrate to Texas beaches to lay their eggs. Unfortunately, Texas beaches also accumulate trash ten times faster than any other Gulf state. Marine debris that litters the coast causes great obstacles and hazards to these species and their young. Our mission is to clean Texas’ upper coastlines so that nesting birds and sea turtles have a greater chance of success and survival.

Join NestFest to remove marine debris from important coastal habitats that are used by beach nesting bird and sea turtle species!

Four (4) reporting stations will be located on Follet’s island.  Volunteer participation will require registration and that a digital liability waiver must be signed (this may be done when you arrive).
