You still have time to be join us in Cameron for a unique event that will provide a high level overview of Louisiana’s coastal land loss crisis. Together, we will take a closer look at restoration and flood risk reduction projects specific to Cameron and Southwest Louisiana. It all starts at 4:30 on Thursday, March 2, 2017, at the Cameron Parish School Board Conference Center with a special open house. The evening will also include small group discussions and the opportunity to talk directly to representatives of the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, the US Army Corps of Engineers and Cameron Parish officials. This event will be entertaining and informative with a little bit of a twist. Not only will you learn about coastal restoration from the experts, you will also get the chance to actually go see where local restoration projects are occurring.
There are a lot of important coastal restoration projects in the works in and around Cameron Parish and you can get a first-hand look. Join Rockefeller Refuge’s own Scooter Trosclair for a two-hour trip into the heart of the Cameron marsh to see these projects up close. You will see marsh creation sites, terraces and vegetative planting, along with several important shoreline protection projects. This is a rare opportunity to see and learn about these vitally important projects.
