Texas estuaries are beautiful and the Mission-Aransas Reserve Director, Jace Tunnell, captured some of the beauty in images that were awarded winners and honorable mentions in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s 2015 Estuary Photo Contest. There were over 130 submissions and our Reserve was awarded winning photos in the “Creepers” and “Play” category.
The contest was created to help promote National Estuaries Day, which is this Saturday September 26, 2015. You can view and DOWNLOAD more of the photos at NOAA’s photo gallery.
The Reserve is also hosting FREE education events this Saturday to celebrate National Estuaries Day. Come join us!
