This entirely new program will be spending a week in Louisiana learning and doing some direct service related to the environment! We will be working with the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, which is a non-profit organization whose mission is to drive bold, science-based action to rebuild Coastal Louisiana. We will be working hard, getting dirty, and having a blast restoring some incredibly beautiful parts of coastal Louisiana.
Specifically, we will be planting marsh grass at impacted sites throughout Louisiana’s coastal zone. This creates a dense root system to anchor the soil and build land, and also provides fish and wildlife a habitat. We will be doing this project for 2-3 days, and then we will heading into New Orleans to do some environmental work there!
