Coastal Expos: Communicating about Coastal Ecosystems

Summary

Coastal Expos are outreach events creating awareness and understanding of the functions and values of coastal ecosystems.  Coastal Expos help Texans learn how they can protect coastal ecosystems through water conservation, recycling and use of native plants.  Coastal Expos uniquely focus on minority populations in Texas and particularly to those who may never otherwise see the Texas coast firsthand.  The project allows communities to use the tools made available by this project to coordinate and host their own Coastal Expos or incorporate Coastal Expo themes into other established community events with local funding.
