Balancing Commerce & Conservation on the Texas Coast

November 11 – 13, 2021

Corpus Christi, Texas

Texas is a global maritime powerhouse. Refineries, fishing boats, shipping terminals, cruise lines, and tourists all converge at the state’s central location on the Gulf of Mexico. From the Sabine River at Texas’s border with Louisiana to the Rio Grande at the Mexican border, Texas’s coastal counties (including Harris County) accounted for 33.4% of total Texas real gross product in 2014. With this data in mind, the Texas Lyceum is hosting a Texas leadership conference in Corpus Christi to discuss how Texas is working to sustainably manage coastal resources while promoting industry in the state. As business, political and community leaders, we seek to connect our group with leaders, scientists, regional experts and policy makers to facilitate a robust conversation where we will strive to answer the question: How does Texas strike a balance between commerce and conservation?
