Fort Bend County Libraries will host a screening of the Texas Parks and Wildlife documentary, “The State of the Gulf: America’s Sea,” on Thursday, October 11, beginning at 7:00 pm, in the Large Meeting Room of the University Branch Library, located at 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.
Introduced by Coastal Prairie Master Naturalist Jamie Harris, this one-hour documentary explores the rich diversity of the Gulf of Mexico’s unique ecology, diverse flora and fauna, and important habitats. The film sheds light on the variety of eco-system services that the Gulf provides to people, and on the various forces that threaten it, such as hurricanes, oil spills, and hypoxia zones. Learn how pragmatic regulation and active fisheries-management have protected and enhanced marine resources for a sustainable future.
This documentary is the fifth in an award-winning series of water-resource documentaries produced by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Harris will be available for questions after the film.
The screening is free and open to the public. For more information, call the branch library at 281-633-5100 or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
