Theresa Dardar, President of the Lowlander Center, will speak to the devastating land loss on the Louisiana Coast.
Please view the maps online to see the extent of the erosion, and come learn about incorporating traditional environmental knowledge into coastal restoration decision-making.
Marine Scientist Robin Hadlock Seeley of Maine will speak on her decades of scientific work on local seaweed, including the safe limits to harvesting. She will also report on actions to stop a silver mine poised to endanger the coast.
Dr. Riki Ott, a marine toxicologist, and former Alaska commercial fisher ma’am who found her path and voice during the transformative crucible of the Exxon Valdez oil spill, will join us to give updates on her ongoing engaged activism on coastal issues, democracy, and a healthy future.
