For the newest focus exhibit, the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station partnered with Texas A&M University to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Texas Sea Grant College Program. Texas Sea Grant: 50 Years of Science and Stewardship explores the rich history of the Texas coast and how the university has supported the shoreland and its people. From maintaining healthy coastal ecosystems to aiding sustainable fisheries to promoting resilient communities, Texas Sea Grant has helped Texans protect and enhance the unique, culturally significant, and economically important resources of Texas’ coastal marine environments.
Additionally, the Bush Library and Museum is proud to feature Oceans of Plastic, a strangely beautiful collection of art made from plastic waste acquired by artist Shelia Rodgers from beaches along the Texas Gulf Coast.
A third exhibit, George Bush: An Environmental President, outlines President Bush’s environmental initiatives and legislation, including the Clean Air Act Amendment, which many experts contend is the most significant piece of environmental legislation of the 20th century.
These temporary exhibits will be on display until July 5, 2022.
