As we watch the initial reports from the northeast and midatlantic, our hearts are heavy at the loss of life and the destruction that Hurricane Sandy has brought thus far and it is with renewed conviction that we understand that we must all pull together to meet the challenges we face as a nation. We hope that everyone remains safe. We know the coming days, weeks and months will be difficult for those impacted by this storm, but if we can all work together as a united nation, there is nothing that we cannot overcome.
Peace and blessings to all. We hope a little Halloween humor can brighten the day.

Why Should We Save Coastal Louisiana? Waterlife Museum Exhibit Closing Nov. 1
You've still got time (but not much) to see Bayou Grace's photo project exhibit, which is currently on display at the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum. Special thanks to the Houma Regional Arts Council for helping to get our WHYs on the walls of the Waterlife Museum. We'll keep you posted about the next stop for this traveling exhibit. It could even be on a wall near you.
Contact us at 985-594-5350 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to help organize a showing of this exhibit documenting a diverse array of reasons why people think it's important to restore and protect the coast.
The CPRA would like to gain feedback from stakeholder groups who are working in coastal Louisiana on related issues such as flood risk reduction, nonstructural protection, hazard mitigation, insurance/building codes, flood adaptive architecture, urban design, and community resiliency. This survey will help them better understand the many diverse perspectives stakeholdershold on effective policies, physical and programmatic measures, and challenges related to the development of a nonstructural program.
