Protecting Baffin Bay’s Natural Resources

at Dick Kleberg Park, 501 E Escondido Rd, Kingsville, TX on October 16th at 6 P.M. - 8 P.M.

About

Baffin Bay supports some of the highest recreational and commercial fishery landings in Texas. It also contains critical habitat for migratory birds and other wildlife and is surrounded by a thriving agricultural community. Current water quality impairments and degradation threaten its health and future.

An existing local Baffin Bay Stakeholder Group, consisting of fisherman, landowners, ranchers, business owners, local government, and agencies, would like to expand protection efforts. The development of a locally driven plan for voluntarily addressing issues through a unified approach provides an advantage when seeking funding for improvement projects. Please join us and share feedback on your vision for the future of Baffin Bay.  

Dinner will be provided and there will be a kid's corner. Please RSVP at tx.ag/baffin so that we can have an accurate count to provide food for everyone. Download the event flyer.
