Offered by: Texas Parks Wildlife Coastal Fisheries division
Program Description:
Live on Location! What are the different types of seagrass, and how do humans affect it? What are the benefits of seagrass? How long does it take seagrass to grow and why is it disappearing? Join us for Seagrass Science and find out! In this program, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's Coastal Fisheries biologists will take us below the water's surface to learn about marine flowering plants. We will get the opportunity to view each of the five types of seagrass that live in the shallow Texas bays and learn why seagrass is such an important habitat for marine critters and people who live in coastal areas.
