On October 4, 2021, the not-for-profit group Restore the Mississippi River Delta published their Community Guide to Coastal Restoration.
This is a quick reference guide to help both new and experienced community leaders better understand and navigate the web of entities, decision-makers, and funding sources involved in the restoration of Louisiana‘s Gulf of Mexico coast.
Many in Louisiana are familiar with the land loss crisis the state is facing. We often hear of a football field of land being lost every 100 minutes.
Such a significant challenge comes with many different solutions, which can quickly become confusing to anyone interested in supporting coastal restoration efforts.
Restore the Mississippi River Delta compiled this guide in the hope that it will be a valuable resource to the people wanting to know more about coastal restoration, those already engaged in advocacy efforts, and the decision-makers who represent us.
The guide is available both online, and as a physical booklet.
