Spring into Action with CRCL
With Mardi Gras behind us and Spring in full swing, it’s a perfect time to join us for one of our volunteer events.
CRCL has worked on mixing in fun with restoration while engaging volunteers. More than 14,000 CRCL volunteers have planted over 3.3 million native plants and trees and helped us recycle more than 8 million pounds of oyster shell.
“Our volunteers sometimes get wet and maybe a little dirty, but they leave with a smile on their face,” said CRCL Restoration Programs Director Dr. Deb Visco Abibou. “It’s a way you can get involved and make a tangible difference. You may think that one person can’t make a difference, but the cumulative impact of each of our projects shows that you can.”
When you volunteer, you will not only help our coast but also learn about a variety of restoration methods that are employed across the entire Louisiana coast.
Whether it’s a day exploring the marsh or trying to bag enough pounds of oyster shells to join our OSRP Ton Club, we have dates throughout the spring. Come out and make a difference for our coast.
