Oysters are often thought of as small creatures, but rarely do they receive the recognition for the big impact they play in Galveston Bay and our local ecosystems. Port Houston teamed up with the Galveston Bay Foundation for the third annual Oyster Reef Restoration Project near Galveston’s Sweetwater Preserve July 22.
Each year, the M/V Sam Houston Boat Tour brings nearly 30,000 visitors to Port Houston for a free, educational trip along the Houston Ship Channel.
Port Houston helped spread the holiday spirit by preparing and packaging Thanksgiving meals for 22 families at the Houston International Seafarers’ Center. Families included both local community members and Port Houston staff affected by Hurricane Harvey.
