Environmental

The Park Board of Trustees of the City of Galveston is a champion of the environment. With many unique and sensitive ecosystems on the island, the Park Board is responsible for the management of the island beach parks and the cleaning of all 32 miles of beachfront. Throughout management decisions, Park Board staff consider environmental impacts a key element in the decision making process. We work closely with environmental partners to ensure best practices are being used in every situation.
