Texas Sea Grant: 50 Years of Science and Stewardship

Monday June 7, 2021 to Tuesday July 5, 2022

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 is celebrating 50 years of science and stewardship at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum!

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, and 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. (188)

This exhibit will be on display in the Ansary Gallery of American History once the museum is open to the public again. Please check back for more information.
