There is Something Fishy in Texas - The Matagorda Bay Foundation Takes Matagorda Bay to Central Texas

July 10, 2019

The Matagorda Bay Foundation and the Austin Public Library have spent the last 3 years entertaining and educating central Texas youths about Gulf coast ecology and the connection between Austinites and their coastal neighbors. Working in partnership with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), Coastal Fisheries Division, MBF staff take examples of sharks, rays, fish, and crustaceans, collected during routine TPWD coastal monitoring, to different Austin Public Library branches for a "show" event that always leaves a lasting impression with all attendees. If you are interested in hosting a similar event, please contact us for details.
