HABITAT RESTORATION PROGRAM
Louisiana’s wetlands are one of the most highly productive and valuable resources in the country. Unfortunately, Louisiana has lost more than 1,900 square miles of coastal wetlands since the 1930’s as a result of natural processes and human activities.
Founded in 2000, CRCL’s Habitat Restoration Program (HRP) leads our efforts to restore Louisiana’s coastal habitats by engaging volunteers and stakeholders to be a part of the solution. Our partnerships and events facilitate environmental stewardship by Louisiana industries, land owners, and business leaders.
The HRP provides valuable education experiences for its volunteers. Participants learn a variety of restoration methods that are employed across the entire Louisiana coast.
By leveraging public and private partnerships, the HRP is also able to coordinate large scale restoration projects, thus widening our impact on target areas of vulnerable wetlands.
Since its inception, the HRP has engaged more than 11,000 volunteers and directly restored more than 4,500 acres of coastal wetlands in Louisiana.

Our Coast, Our Future
You can make a difference on our coast! Spend a day with us in the marsh, on the beach, or in the forest by volunteering with our Habitat Restoration Program. Only with your help can we accomplish hands-on restoration across the state.
