Gulf of Mexico Foundation
Intracoastal Waterway Wetlands Cruise

IWWC dates: June 14-18, 2010
TRIP CANCELLED

The Gulf of Mexico Foundation’s Intracoastal Waterway Wetlands Cruise (IWWC) is a four-day workshop that takes place aboard the M/V Fling, a 100-foot live-aboard operated by Fling Charters. This workshop will educate participants on coastal habitats and issues facing the Gulf Coast and its inhabitants.Intracoastal Waterway Wetlands Cruise

Now in its second year, the Intracoastal Waterway Wetlands Cruise will take place June 14-18, 2010. Spaces will begin booking in January.

The IWWC workshop is sponsored by the Gulf of Mexico Foundation for K-12 and college entry educators, nationwide. ConocoPhillips is also a major sponsor. The cruise will begin in Freeport, Texas (near Galveston) and travel along the Intracoastal Waterway towards New Orleans, Louisiana.

Along the way, participants will explore coastal habitats and issues. The workshop curriculum will involve many “hands-on” opportunities, allowing for a better understanding of the local environment. Naturalists and other authorities will be on board throughout the cruise to discuss coastal issues.Intracoastal Waterway Wetlands Cruise

Educators of all levels will walk away from the workshop experience with the means to actively involve their students in the learning process, to expose them to coastal ecology, and to share personal experiences about living and working on the Gulf Coast.

Through providing educators with this hands-on field experience, the Gulf of Mexico Foundation hopes to encourage interest in and conservation of these important habitats.
