News Release
Thursday, February 09, 2017

Brazoria County Parks Department, Christmas Bay Foundation and Gulf Coast Search and Rescue will partner again this year for the annual Abandoned Crab Trap Cleanup on February 18.

The event will start at  7 am on February 18, at Seidler’s Boat Ramp, located at the turnoff at 10530 Bluewater Hwy, Freeport, TX (across from Beach Access Road 6 on Follett’s Island). Volunteers are welcome to participate and are encouraged to bring their own kayak or shallow draft boat. The morning will be spent removing old, abandoned crab traps that create environmental hazards to fish and aquatic wildlife.

In 2002 , The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department began sponsoring a 10-day crab trap closure during February. Since that time, more than 30,000 abandoned traps have been removed from Texas coastal waters. For more information, contact the Brazoria County Parks Dept. at (979) 864-1541.
