Steve K. Alexander joins us on the Saturday before Christmas with a nature guide to the island.
The Natural Attractions of the Island
Along the Upper Texas Coast, Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula are among the state’s most ecologically diverse areas. The popular vacation spot is not only a beach playground for visitors, but also one of the top birding and fishing destinations in Texas. Exploring Galveston looks at the island through the eyes of a naturalist who has wandered coastal Texas for more than 40 years. Through a series of 25 stories, readers get an expert, guided tour of the best natural wonders Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula has to offer.
Steve Alexander is a native Texan who moved with his family to Galveston when he was 9 years old. It was then he began his lifelong adventure wandering Galveston Island’s shorelines. After graduating from Ball High School, he continued his education studying biology at the University of Houston and marine sciences at Louisiana State University. He then taught for 27 years, first at Texas A&M University at Galveston and later at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. After retirement, he and his wife Pam returned to the Galveston area where he now teaches part-time at Texas A&M University at Galveston and volunteers as a Texas Master Naturalist.
