Workers are making progress on the Wetland Education Center, being built at The University of Texas at Austin Marine Science Institute (UTMSI). Looking north toward the south jetty, much of the main basin of the center has been excavated and a weir dam, center back-
ground, has been erected to maintain the water level in the basin at low tide. Another section of the wetland is being built just east of the UTMSI marina. The center will connect to both the marina and the pass by means of large culvert pipes.
