Help us keep trash out of our oceans and waterways by joining our beach clean ups around Galveston Island!

Over 100 million marine animals are killed each year due to plastic debris in the ocean. Currently, it is estimated that there are 100 million tons of plastic in oceans around the world.

We host beach clean ups for small groups around Galveston Island, Monday through Friday, with some weekend availability. Join us!

How Cleanups Work

Our clean ups are designed for small groups and are located around Galveston Island Monday through Friday with some weekend availability hosted by a member of our Turtle Island Restoration Network Team. Our lead volunteer for this program is Robin K Yates.

When you get on site, your group leader will give instructions on trash collecting, filling out data cards, and safety guidelines. After the cleanup has been completed, the group leader will instruct the packing up of materials, and the wrap up meeting location at either Turtle Island Restoration Network or Galveston Island Brewing. This meeting will include a brief educational presentation, and a chance to discuss what all was found that day and it’s impact on our backyard beach environment.
