Chris Snyder, director of The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Research Lab’s Marine Education Center and a member of the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium Education Team, will give a tour of the education center’s new facility that opened earlier this year in Ocean Springs.
Tour the brand-new Marine Education Center! This facility showcases sustainable construction that demonstrates how everyone can conserve coastal resources through responsible decision making.
You will learn how sustainable design techniques, green infrastructure and site management have created buildings that are in harmony with their coastal environment.
The teaching complex is an important education tool that is appropriate to the landscape, resilient and built with environmentally sustainable materials and systems.
