WaterMarks360 is a multifaceted project intended to teach people of all ages about Louisiana’s wetlands and restoration efforts by virtually exploring different coastal habitats. In addition to self-navigated 360° video hotspots and informational videos, this project also includes resource materials and several STEM experiments in which students will explore concepts like wetland formation and erosion, as well as impacts of terrace construction, vegetative plantings and dune fences. These virtual experiences and hands-on activities will give users the confidence to participate in conversations surrounding Louisiana’s land loss crisis with their peers and community members.

Getting younger community members excited about Louisiana’s wetlands will help create future stewards of Louisiana’s beautiful coastal environments, but opportunities for people to visit these areas don’t always come easily. WaterMarks360 Experiences increase accessibility by providing this open-source learning experience to anyone with an internet connection.
