Kudos to Houston Audubon staff and volunteers, Bolivar Peninsula residents, the Sierra Club and Galveston County for the cleanup and placement of educational signs and trash cans at the base of the North Jetty! I truly did not recognize the view which now has appropriate signage and no litter! With continued education, community concern and attention, the North Jetty will look this good or better during spring migration.
Miracles can happen when groups and site managers work together to find solutions. Litter surveys show that people are less likely to litter when there is no litter! To this end, Houston Audubon (HA) has embarked on an initiative to collaborate with Galveston County site managers and stakeholders to reduce plastic waste non-point source pollution along Galveston County shorelines where there is high human recreational litter and nesting/roosting bird habitat.
