Gunter Library Sponsors Paint the Can Event

Thursday, August 29, 2019 3:25 PM | Carol Green

On July 5, Gunter Library at the University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Research Laboratory (GCRL) in Ocean Springs sponsored a “Paint the Can” event for the students taking classes in the Summer Field Program. Six students participated. The cans are being placed at the Marine Education Center at Cedar Point and at the main GCRL campus located adjacent to East Beach. Students received participation awards including tee-shirts, visors, usb drives, and posters of Gulf of Mexico fishes. Partners for this event included: GCRL Physical Plant, City of Ocean Springs Public Works, Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium, and East Beach Specialties. Gunter Library sponsored a similar event in July 2005, but those cans were washed away in Hurricane Katrina.
