Our September Bag Heroes are Joan and Scott Holt, marine scientists from the University of Texas Marine Science Institute and avid birders. Now retired, they spend their time birding in Port Aransas at the Joan and Scott Holt Paradise Pond or traveling to exotic places for wildlife viewing.
Like many other Port Aransas residents, the Holts are hoping that their City Council will make a bold statement on September 18th when they vote on a plastic bag ban ordinance.
“Minimizing our use of plastic bags is just another aspect of our environment-friendly philosophy and it is something we think about every time we go shopping. We would be very proud if Port Aransas would step up and take the lead in the Coastal Bend in the effort to reduce the use of plastic bags”.
