The Galveston Bay Foundation last week received $2.3 million from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to complete a major marsh restoration project in the Dollar Bay-Moses Lake complex on Galveston Bay near Texas City.

The fish and wildlife foundation administers the Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund, money paid by BP in penalties after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Those funds have benefited efforts by the Galveston Bay Foundation and other Texas Gulf coast environmental nonprofits in their efforts to preserve and restore bay shorelines and marsh complexes over the past several years.
