The Causes & Effects of a Healthy Galveston Bay
April 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join Sasha Francis, Community Engagement Coordinator at the Galveston Bay Foundation, as she discusses the very significant links between the health of Galveston Bay, the health of people in the Galveston Bay watershed (50% of the population of Texas) and the economy in this region. The health of the Bay relies on a symbiotic relationship between its ecosystem and the communities that are connected to it. And, the health of the bay has major economic impacts as the 2nd highest producer of seafood in the U.S. and a vital shipping corridor, as well as a tourism destination. Sasha will discuss the 2020 Galveston Bay Report Card’s updated information of the 6 categories of Bay health and what it means to the surrounding community’s unity, wellbeing, and economy. Time will be provided for discussion with the audience after Sasha’s talk. Please register for this talk on www.eventbrite.com. Contact Lisa Brenskelle at [email protected] with any questions.
