The East End Lagoon Nature Park and Preserve (EEL) is located on Galveston Island, Texas. A project of the Galveston Park Board of Trustees, the City of Galveston and the Galveston Island Nature Tourism Council, the EEL is a unique and valuable area spanning almost 700 acres of diverse habitat on the barrier island's east end.
At the February 26, 2019 Park Board of Trustees meeting a completed copy of the new proposed business plan was presented with a unanimous motion to accept the plan and produce a handout for community education. This plan focuses revenue generation around user activities. Recommended amenities include an offshore fishing structure on the channel, a 65 space overnight camping facility, trailheads, walking trails and a 2,897 square foot open-air interpretative center.
Next steps for this project include a more comprehensive wetland delineation to guide the development; work with the Coast Guard for channel side fishing opportunities and; research for overnight camping amenities.
