Located in the Coastal Bend of Texas, the LAVACA BAY FOUNDATION announces its official creation with its purpose of preserving and protecting the natural resources of the Lavaca Bay estuarine system and its tributaries for present users and for posterity. For many years now, Lavaca Bay has existed without an advocate.

LAVACA BAY FOUNDATION is the only such organization with its exclusive purpose being the enhancement and protection of the Lavaca Bay system. The Foundation will encourage the proper economic use, development, improvement, and protection of the Lavaca Bay estuarine system and its tributaries. It will inform and educate the public about the Lavaca Bay estuarine system, serve as its advocate and monitor activities that may impact the system. The Foundation will sponsor projects, activities, and events which contribute to the welfare of the Lavaca Bay System. It will focus on those projects which will preserve and enhance those natural resources of the Lavaca Bay system having aesthetic, recreational, and economic value.

The general public, special focus groups, and industry are invited to participate in Foundation activities and further its mission by SUBSCRIBING AS AN LBF SUPPORTER. The Foundation is approved as an Internal Revenue Code, Section 501(C)(3), tax exempt PUBLIC CHARITY chartered by the State of Texas and recognized by the Internal Revenue Service under Internal Revenue Code, Section 170(b)(1)(A)(vi).
