Paint your mornings with hues of dawn in our sunrise photography adventure!

Tap into your creative side alongside a park ranger, as you delve into the fundamentals of photography while exploring the scenic beach and bay landscapes of Galveston Island State Park!

Gather at the turtle statue to receive guidance on photography essentials before embarking on a picturesque walk on the beach and short hike on the trails to practice your newfound skills.

Trail selection will be based on current weather and wildlife sightings, so prepare for a range of different trail types and sights, and enjoy the early morning views before the heat of the day!

No need to sign up in advance—simply show up and seize the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature's beauty through the lens!

  • Meet: Sea turtle statue in the beachside day use area; we will drive to a few locations
