Join us as we improve resilience through bridging science communication to our local planning audience. This workshop will bring engaged scientists together with planners, floodplain managers, and other local decision makers to explore resiliency issues and planning needs and identify how best to apply scientific research to improve local planning efforts by uniting and improving communication among the academic and planning communities.

The Mission-Aransas Reserve, in partnership with The Nueces Delta Preserve, will be hosting a summer Teachers On The Estuary (TOTE) Workshop. This FREE two and a half day workshop, scheduled July 19-21, 2017, is designed to help middle and high school teachers bring estuarine science into their classroom, laboratory and field programs.
The TOTE workshop is open to middle or high school science teachers who teach in one of the following Texas coastal watershed counties: Aransas, Austin, Bee, Brazoria, Brooks, Calhoun,
Habitat balance is essential to our coastal estuaries and oceans. Sargassum seaweed is just one important nursery habitats for young fishes, crabs, shrimp and other invertebrates, as well as endangered sea turtles. Join UTMSI scientists as they share their research about these floating nurseries and what impact the Deepwater Horizon oil spill had on them.
We will meet at 10am in the Exploer Lab at The Marine Science Education Center (855 E. cotter Ave. Port Aransas). Please RSVP to Nicole Pringle at npringle@austin.
Graduate student Alexis Khursigara will be teaching us about her current study that focuses on the behavior of fishes! You will have the opportunity to be a scientist for the morning as we get hands on and involved with her studies. Participants of all ages are welcome to join us!
We will meet at 10am in the Auditorium at The Marine Science Education Center (855 E. cotter Ave. Port Aransas). Please RSVP to Nicole Pringle at

Join us at 10am on Saturday, January 14th, 2017 at The University of Texas Marine Science Institute for “Crusty Critters-Crustaceans in the Estuary.”Crustaceans, such as blue crabs, hermit crabs, fiddler crabs and shrimps, are “crusty” because they wear their skeletons on the outside. We will learn about these important animals and discuss why they are so valuable to estuaries and humans alike. Participants of all ages will observe, interact and get hands on with these crusty critters to better
