Engineering with Nature on the Texas Coast

Our Chief Representative, Baukje “Bee” Kothuis, participated in the panel “Engineering with Nature on the Texas Coast”, at the Annual Conference organized by the Environmental & Water Resources Institute (EWRI) in Huston.

The panel discussed the challenges and opportunities of Engineering- and Building-with-Nature systems along the Texas coast. The Houston and Galveston Bay region is working hard to advance the sustainability and resiliency of its environmental and water resources. NBSO Texas is proud to partner with local, regional, and academic organizations to further develop expertise on both sides of the Atlantic.
