Marshes in TexasRestoration work in the Texas Restoration Area focuses on restoring wetlands and other coastal habitats and reducing nonpoint source pollution. The Texas Trustees also restore resources injured by the spill, including oysters, birds, sea turtles, and recreational use.

In 2017, the Trustees released their first Restoration Plan with 13 projects restoring oysters, and wetlands, coastal, and nearshore habitat. The Trustees are developing additional restoration plans for specific projects consistent with the Programmatic Restoration Plan As part of the ongoing restoration planning process, the Trustees will solicit restoration project ideas from the public. When the Trustees release any proposed restoration plan for the Texas Restoration Area, the public has the opportunity to review and provide comments. Once a plan is finalized, the Trustees will implement and monitor the selected projects (see chart below).
