Our Work

Freshwater wetlands in the Houston-Galveston region provide many ecosystem services. Freshwater wetlands store rainfall and reduce surface runoff to diminish flooding, they store nutrients, filter pollutants, and provide valuable habitat for many species of wildlife. These important wetland habitats are being lost at an increasing rate in the Lower Galveston Bay Watershed. Losses are largely due to the growing human population and associated development patterns in the Houston-Galveston Region.
