Following in the recent education thread of discussion, I'd like to make 
everyone aware of our annual educator workshop that includes a SCUBA 
field experience at the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary.   
This program is geared specifically to K-12 educators both in and 
outside the traditional classroom.

*Down Under, Out Yonder - Texas*
The 2007 Down Under, Out Yonder educator workshop and field expedition, 
hosted by the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary and 
sponsored by the Gulf of Mexico Foundation, will be held July 7-11, 
2007.  This unique workshop about coral reef ecosystems and the National 
Marine Sanctuary Program, specifically the Flower Garden Banks NMS 
located in the Gulf of Mexico, consists of 2 days of land-based workshop 
followed by 3 days of SCUBA diving in the sanctuary.  All applicants 
must be previously SCUBA certified and have a fair amount of open water 
diving experience.  Applications and information are available on both 
of the following websites.  This is a competitive application process; 
the application deadline is February 28, 2007.
