Museum of the Gulf Coast has great educational programs in addition to all of the wonderful exhibits. If you haven't been there lately, you're missing out!
PortArthurWelcomesYou.comIsn’t this just ADORABLE?!?! The book...not our Education Coordinator Andy McCall! 😜🤣😂 Andy recently did our Wonders of the Sea Discovery Trunk program for first graders at Sallie Curtis Elementary in Beaumont. Afterward, teacher Kiersten Lamb’s class put this book together to show what they learned about some of the different creatures in our Gulf Coast waters! Great job, kids! We give you an A+! As promised to these sharp kids, we will find the perfect place in the museum to put their work temporarily on display!

If you’re a teacher, administrator, librarian or any type of group leader for kids, give Andy a call at (409)999-6284 to find out about our year-round Discovery Trunks or group (kids or adults) tour deals!

Pleasure Island Bridge Half Marathon, 10K & 2 miler 
Saturday, October 27, 2018.

Run the bridge in costume this year!

WHAT:  The seventh annual Pleasure Island Bridge Half Marathon, 10K & 2 Miler will be held Saturday, October 27, 2018.
WHERE: Port Arthur's Pleasure Island, an 18.5mile long man-made body of land, extending from the mouth of the Neches River on the northwest to the Sabine Causeway on the southeast and is surrounded by Sabine Lake and the Sabine Neches Intracoastal Waterway. Half Marathon and 10K participants take on the challenge of the MLK Jr. bridge at 5,032 feet in length and 138 feet above the Sabine- Neches Canal. 2 milers enjoy the speed of a flat, fast course.
WHEN: Saturday, October 27, 2018 starting at 7:30 a.m.
WHY:  This year proceeds will be dedicated toward research for combating Alzheimer’s. It will also be a fun, Halloween costumed event.  Many cities are identified by its marathon or half marathon and use it as a major tourism  draw. Marathons add to a city's reputation of being progressive, health conscious and concerned about its citizens. Southeast Texas was named one of the unhealthiest areas is the country. The Pleasure Island Bridge Half Marathon is taking steps to alter that image. Most importantly, obesity, especially in children, has become a national epidemic. We are working to counter this by providing an event that encourages youth and adults to take action toward improving their health. Being active also battles sarcopenia, osteoporosis, and a host of other age-related maladies.
WHO:  The event is hosted by Sports Society for American Health a 501(c)(3)  nonprofit organization founded in 2000, which hosts professionally sanctioned races and athletic events to improve the community with a special focus on children’s health and education.
