About the Bucket Brigade
The Bucket Brigade, in conjunction with the Galveston Island Park Board of Trustees, provides free interpretive tours to beach-goers on Galveston Island. The Bucket Brigade’s goal is to increase public understanding of the positive role of sargassum and turbid water in our marine and coastal ecosystems.
Bucket Brigade will also highlight the impact we can all have on coastal ecosystems through marine debris and pollution, and has the potential to directly impact thousands of visitors including those from far away and right here in the Galveston Bay watershed. Tours last approximately one hour and involve hands-on activities to give visitors an appreciation for Galveston’s different but not “dirty” beaches. Bucket Brigade is made possible thanks to a grant from the Texas Coastal Management Program through the Texas General Land Office.
