The Edinburg Scenic Wetlands & World Birding Center (EWBC) and Texas Parks & Wildlife are pleased to bring back the Rio Grande Valley Coastal Expo to Edinburg.

The 2015 RGV Coastal Expo is a free, fun, and educational hands-on event that teaches children in grades 1 through 6 about coastal ecosystems, South Texas wildlife and outdoor adventures.

Educators are invited to register students for this exciting, exploratory event that will be held on Feb. 12-13 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event is designed to bring the coast, its associated ecology, and the wonders of the Rio Grande into the backyards of our youth, especially those that may not have access to it otherwise.

Using a multitude of hands-on stations, nature walks and skills training, organizers hope to introduce children to the world of wonder and exploration of the Texas coast and river basin.

If you know of particular teachers who would be interested in this event and would like more information, please have them contact Lily Cruz at [email protected] or 956-381-9922 at your earliest convenience.

Individual classrooms or entire grade levels can be registered.  However, space is limited, so contact us as soon as possible.
