I hope your summer is off to a great start and you are staying cool in this heat! Our new photo contest is a great way for you and your family to get outdoors and explore the beautiful scenery of Lake Pontchartrain. Make sure to submit your photos by July 16!
We applaud the Louisiana Legislature on their continued prioritization of coastal restoration and protection at this pivotal moment in our state’s history. They must continue to prioritize science and put available funding toward the most powerful coastal restoration projects.
Here are the key takeaways from the State's FY22 Annual Plan that passed unanimously: 90% of total expenditures will go toward project implementation and maintenance, there are 125 active projects (73 of those are in SE Louisiana!), 18 dredging projects are slated for construction using 89.4 million cubic yards of dredged material to create or nourish nearly 14,000 acres of our coast.
There is a lot of great work occurring, and we are excited to be a part of it.
Thanks for your continuous support of Science for our Coast!
