Since 1988, the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana has helped lead the fight to protect and restore our coastal wetlands. With the help of donors like you, we have recycled over 12.7 million pounds of oyster shell and built 8,000 feet of living shoreline. We have also restored more than 4,500 acres of wetlands, planting trees and grasses to anchor fragile soil across the state.
Meet our Restoration Krewe
CRCL’s restoration krewe are a small but mighty team that works to restore Louisiana’s coast by hosting volunteer events through our Native Plants Program and the Oyster Shell Recycling Program.
