Get Hip to Habitat

The Get Hip to Habitat program brings GBF’s environmental education and habitat restoration initiatives together for a year-long program. Participation in the program requires sustained activity and a commitment by teachers and students of a full school year. In the fall of the school year, students harvest native estuarine marsh grass with GBF educators and learn about local marsh characteristics. Back on their campus grounds, they set up mini-marsh grass nurseries on their school grounds.

Throughout the school year, students cultivate their grasses and monitor the growth and health of their mini-marshes by regularly testing and maintaining the proper environmental parameters of their nurseries. In the spring, students culminate their project by transplanting their matured grasses to local estuarine marsh restoration sites selected by GBF. The program teaches students about the ecosystem and watershed, as well as imparting a sense of ownership of and responsibility for their marsh restoration project, all while teaching them to be good stewards of Galveston Bay.

Club Sponsors: Mrs. Badeaux and Mr. Primeaux
