Hurricane Harvey put the Aquarium at Rockport Harbor’s lecture series “out of business” for the past year, but the series is about to start again.
The lectures will be held at the aquarium’s education building, which survived the storm.
They will be held at 7 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month from November through March, and are free to the public.
Lectures focus on the Gulf of Mexico and Coastal Bend environments. The aim is to educate the public about the marine world.
The first lecture (Nov. 7) is about whales in the Gulf of Mexico. The speaker is Director of the Harte Research Institute of TAMU-CC Dr. Larry McKinney.
Who knew there were whales in the Gulf? There are actually 10 species, but only one is large. The rest are small, about dolphin size.
The public is welcome. Bring a friend.
