This video showcases how the  Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana's Oyster Shell Recycling Program uses a resources that might otherwise end up in landfills to prevent coastal erosion and create habitat for new oysters

The Lower 9th Ward Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development (CSED), National Audubon Society, and the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) are proud to release a virtual tour highlighting the significance of a healthy coast as part of a healthy community. Told through local voices, the tour examines key areas and infrastructure surrounding the Lower 9th Ward community that have a direct role in providing protection from damaging winds and water driven by tropical storms and hurricanes.

The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana has postponed its State of the Coast conference, which had been scheduled for May of this year, until 2021 because of concerns surrounding COVID-19. The premier gathering for coastal restoration in Louisiana will take place June 2 to 4, 2021. The conference will be at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in downtown New Orleans, as previously planned.

The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana has postponed its State of the Coast conference, which had been scheduled for May of this year, until 2021 because of concerns surrounding COVID-19. The premier gathering for coastal restoration in Louisiana will take place June 2 to 4, 2021. The conference will be at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in downtown New Orleans, as previously planned. 
Registration for the 2020 conference will be honored for next year’s gathering. The program will be reviewed and reconsidered in the coming months to ensure timely content and to include discussion of how the coronavirus pandemic may affect our climate and coastal restoration. Further developments about State of the Coast 2021 will be sent via email and posted on the conference website.

This time-lapse video shows dramatic changes to the shoreline in Lake Athanasio in the Biloxi Marsh. Over the course of a year, the installation of our living shoreline reef slows the erosion rate by nearly half compared to an area close by without one.

The state’s 2017 Coastal Master Plan consists of 120 different restoration projects across the Louisiana coast. All projects are valuable to decreasing land loss, but certain projects can have broader impacts. CRCL highlights several key restoration projects that are critical to slowing this land loss.  

"The Louisiana coast is our future. We can’t keep losing so much each year.  We have to stand up and do something about it."
