The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana is proud to announce the recipients of its 2020 Coastal Stewardship Awards. The winners will be honored at a gala next month. This marks the 25th year for CRCL’s Coastal Stewardship Awards, which honor individuals and organizations that demonstrate outstanding commitment to the coast and have made significant contributions to the conservation and restoration of Louisiana’s coastal wetlands. 

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and National Academy of Sciences President Marcia McNutt have been announced as plenary speakers at the State of the Coast conference in New Orleans in May. Other plenary speakers confirmed for State of the Coast are former Sen. John Breaux, Sen. Bill Cassidy, Rep. Garret Graves of Louisiana, former National Hurricane Center Director Rick Knabb, Tulane University geographer Richard Campanella, and MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Kate Orff. 

The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana is closely monitoring news and guidance from local and national governments and public health officials about the coronarivus COVID-19 and carefully considering the steps we must take to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and others with whom we interact in the course of our work. We are committed to following best practices. We have canceled all volunteer events for March. The organizations hosting the State of the Coast conference are working on plans to adapt to a fast-changing situation. The 2020 conference will not be canceled, but it may be rescheduled for later in the year. We will be sharing further updates as they become available.

Critical Projects

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.  Read more.

"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."
