Habitat and Stewardship Programs
Coastal Heritage Preserve
Artist Boat is striving to preserve and restore 1,400 contiguous acres from beach to bay, growing the Coastal Heritage Preserve to the scale of Galveston Island State Park, with just over 2,000 acres. Through kayaking and other programs at the preserve and other locations, Artist Boat promotes awareness and preservation of coastal habitats and the marine environment through science and art.
