Welcome to the Galveston Bay Estuary Program
Preserving Galveston Bay for generations to come
Our purpose is to provide comprehensive ecosystem management through collaborative
partnerships and to ensure preservation of Galveston Bay’s multiple uses.
Students and interns learn about sampling protocols for the Targeted Bacteria Monitoring Project, a partnership with GBEP, Bayou Preservation Association, and the Student Conservation Association. Find out more about this project and others on our current projects page .
The State of the Bay website is now available and filled with historical information and up-to-date analysis of the conditions in and around Galveston Bay. The State of the Bay Report was transformed into an interactive website by the Houston Advanced Research Center and is an excellent resource for the Galveston Bay community. Explore the report’s new visualization tools, such as the data viewer , map gallery , success stories, and more at www.stateofgalvbay.org .
