A hallmark of Texas A&M University is its status as a land-, sea- and space-grant university. One of those programs, the Texas Sea Grant College Program, will be showcased at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.
“50 Years of Science and Stewardship” is slated to run through July 5, 2022 in the Ansary Gallery of American History. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
As one of the first sea grant programs, Texas Sea Grant has a rich history of supporting the Texas coast and its people through cutting-edge research and innovative outreach and educational programs. From maintaining healthy coastal ecosystems to aiding sustainable fisheries to promoting resilient communities, Texas Sea Grant has helped Texans protect and enhance the unique, culturally significant, and economically important resources of Texas’ coastal and marine environments.
At this exhibit, visitors can discover the wonders of the Texas coast, learn how sea turtles are saved by Turtle Excluder Devices (by walking through a shrimper’s net), find out how experts build communities for the changing Texas coast, see how Texas Sea Grant has helped these efforts and more.
Visitors will learn about historic and current Texas Sea Grant programs and successes, and they will realize their own impact as stewards of the Texas coast.
Visitors are encouraged to visit the library’s website for updates to hours of operation.
