New USM Marine Education Center grand opening

USM’s Marine Education Center is open today after nearly three years of construction.

On Monday, more than a hundred people flocked to a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony for the new state-of-the-art facility, situated on ten acres of land in Ocean Springs at Cedar Point.

Plans for the center were unveiled back in 2015. As crews worked on building the new center, educators and researchers had to work out of trailers since Katrina had destroyed the old site.

The new center and facility was designed with students grade K through 12 in mind, but tours are also open to the public.
