Exhibit Honors “Stewards of Nature” Opening September 10

The Friends of the History Center are delighted to present an exhibit about “Stewards of Nature.” Your friends and neighbors will be showcased in posters and programs that relate their efforts that have restored and preserved our precious coastal environment. The exhibit will open Saturday, September 10 with remarks at 6:00 PM at the History Center, 801 E. Cedar St. The exhibit is free and open to the public on Fridays and Saturdays 10 AM – 2 PM with programs on designated Sundays at 2:00 PM.
Over the years many people have recognized the beauty and value of the coastal environment of Aransas County. The sandy barrier islands, muddy marshes and green mottes of oaks foster rich habitats. The Friends of the History Center will honor those men, women, and organizations, who have promoted a conservation ethic through preservation, protection and restoration of nature.
Birder Connie Hagar will lead the line-up. Numerous organizations will be recognized for their impact on Aransas County. Those included in the exhibit are Friends of Aransas and Matagorda Island (Aransas National Wildlife Refuge), Aransas First, Aransas Pathways, Aransas County Bird and Nature Club, the Aquarium at Rockport Harbor, the City of Rockport, Coastal Conservation Association Texas, Ducks Unlimited, Friends of Connie Hagar (C. Hagar Cottage Sanctuary), the Marine Lab (TPWD), and Master Naturalists- Mid-Coast Chapter. Several individuals will be highlighted for their contributions to the conservation ethic. They include Ray Little, Betty Baker, Jay Tarkington, Tommy Moore, Earl Matthew, Kris Kirkwood, and James R. Fox. The exhibit is based on nominations from the community.
