The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History newest exhibit highlights community efforts to preserve the Coastal Bend’s precious natural resources.  The Coastal Bend Bays Foundation has set up a new temporary exhibit titled ’20 years of working together.  It features 20 years of posters from Earth Day Bay Day.

Foundation leaders say the collaboration is a perfect fit to showcase the history of community efforts to preserve the natural beauty of Coastal Bend.  Earth Day Bay Day is a local annual educational and outreach festival for residents and visitors.  It’s organized through the Coastal Bend Bays Foundation.  The event encourages good stewardship of the Earth through education and promotion of conservation and sustainability.  An estimated 10,000 visitors attend each year.

The exhibit will run through April 5 at the museum.

“It’s very important that our citizens, our business and our industry understand the importance of our bays, our estuaries and our fresh water resources,” said Danielle Converse, president of the Coastal Bend Bays Foundation. “Without them, many of the things that are vital to our survival would not be possible.”

Following its time at the museum, the exhibit will be on display at this year’s Earth Day Bay Day event”” at Heritage Park on April 6 if weather permits.
