Currents - Dec/Jan 2018
In the aftermath of the storms this summer, the coast is back up and running with some changes. As parts of the coast are rebuilding, everyone is learning and adapting to the changes caused by the storms. Be careful when running the Intracoastal Waterway. Parts have sanded in due to the amount of water forced through the channel, and there is debris to be on the lookout for. Make sure the kill switch is attached while running.
On October 26 we had our second round of the “Speaker Series” with Leslie D. Hartman as the keynote speaker. Leslie is the Matagorda Bay Ecosystem Leader for the CCA. His address of the state of the bay system in Matagorda sparked a frenzy of questions and led to an informative discussion for the entire group to enjoy. Topics included fish sampling, salinity levels in the bays, past proposals and future efforts to restore Parker’s Cut. The meal consisted of ribeye steaks and lobster, joined by dirty rice and salad. Thank you to everyone for their help getting this event planned and executed. Stay tuned for info on our third event!
