San Antonio Bay Rookery Island Restoration/Creation Project Planning
San Antonio Bay Partnership will use the planning grant to be an integral participant in a joint planning process now underway among numerous participants representing environmental organizations and agencies: The Nature Conservancy, Audubon Texas, the San Antonio Bay Partnership, the San Antonio Bay Foundation, the Coastal Bend Bays and Estuaries Program, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and the Texas General Land Office. The goal of this planning process is to identify suitable sites within the San Antonio Bay system for rookery island restoration and creation; to develop the technical, environmental, and engineering information to support the design and permitting of the project; and to prepare construction plans ready for funding. This project is being led by James Dodson.
