The National Marine Fisheries Service Southeast Regional Office (Fisheries Southeast Regional Office) is seeking proposals under the Gulf of Mexico B-WET Program (http://sero.nmfs.noaa.gov/outreach_education/gulf_b_wet/).
The Gulf of Mexico B-WET program is a competitive, environmental education,

Funded projects provide Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) for students, related professional development for teachers, and help to support regional education and environmental priorities in the Gulf of Mexico.
This program addresses NOAA's Long-Term Goal of "Healthy Oceans:
Marine fisheries, habitats, and biodiversity are sustained within healthy and productive ecosystems" and "NOAA's Engagement Enterprise Objective for An engaged and educated public with an improved capacity to make scientifically informed environmental decisions".
