    Over 4,700 acres of coastal habitat in Texas along Halls Bayou and West Galveston Bay were recently acquired by Galveston Bay Foundation (GBF) and will be permanently protected with a conservation easement held by the Katy Prairie Conservancy (both accredited). The newly named Chocolate Bay Preserve includes tidal marshes, freshwater and brackish wetlands and coastal tallgrass prairie.
