The Moda Marsh & Wetlands Preserve will include a living shoreline and bulkhead to provide two layers of defense from coastal erosion for the property. The living shoreline will create new coastal wetlands along more than 1,000 feet of Galveston Bay shoreline in Kemah, Texas. Galveston Bay Foundation’s planned Gessner Center, including the foundation’s education center and headquarters, will be located on the 30+ acre property. Coastal wetlands also create resiliency to extreme weather events, provide natural filtration for polluted runoff and serve as natural carbon sinks.
