Oct. 19 Community Conversation on Sea-Level Rise, Wetlands Loss and Restoration


Louisiana’s Coastal Master Plan, the document that guides efforts to restore our vanishing coast, is due for an update next year. Help guide that process by joining a Community Conversation on Wed., Oct. 19, 5 p.m. at Dillard University.  The event is open to the public and dinner will be provided. Please RSVP to ror.rsvp@gmail.com.

Coastal restoration works in tandem with urban water management to create “multiple lines of defense” for our communities against storms and flooding. You may have seen recent news reports about the accelerated rate of relative sea-level rise threatening Louisiana. This is your chance to hear from state scientists and engineers what they predict for our coast and how we can respond.  It’s critical that state policymakers receive public input as well as public support in the effort to protect our city and coast.
