Honoring the heroes who are

helping our coastal communities

May 2024

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

After decades of coastal land loss, things are changing in Louisiana. There is an unprecedented level of activity in coastal restoration, and some of the most important large-scale projects in history are on the verge of beginning construction.

Getting to this point hasn’t been easy, but in the 35 years since CRCL was founded, the momentum has shifted from raising awareness to implementing solutions.

There have been countless heroes in the battle to save Louisiana’s coast – elected officials, organizational leaders, scientists, community organizers, volunteers and more. We would like your help in honoring some of them at our annual CRCL Coastal Stewardship Awards event, which will be held in Baton Rouge on May 9, 2024.

The awards, which include recognition for volunteers, students, lifetime achievement and other coastal stewards, are among the most prestigious given to the people and organizations dedicated to addressing our land loss crisis. But to be considered for an award, a person or group must be nominated.

That’s why we are asking for your help today. Please consider making a nomination soon. The deadline for nominations has been extended to February 23, 2024.

Please consider sponsoring or attending our 28th annual Coastal Stewardship Awards.
