CRCL: Volunteers Needed – Beach Restoration in Southwest Louisiana

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED- Beach Restoration in Southwest Louisiana

The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) and Cheniere Energy invite you to participate in a wetland restoration project that will enhance the sand dunes along the Cameron Shoreline in Southwest Louisiana. This area provides essential protection for Louisiana’s inland communities and wetlands, and it was severely impacted by recent hurricanes. Volunteers will plant over 10,000 dune plants which will assist in stabilizing and capturing sand in the hopes of building dunes. In addition, the project will also create wildlife habitat and increase species diversity.

When: Saturday, June 22, 2013
  9 a.m. till no later than 2 p.m.
Where: Cameron Shoreline – Long Beach Road (10 miles west of Holly Beach, LA)

All equipment (shovels, gloves, etc.) will be provided.

Lunch and drinks will be provided to all volunteers.

Minimum age for volunteers is 10, but all minors must be accompanied by an adult.

We request that all volunteers please register so we can plan for the correct number of volunteers. You can complete an online registration form below or call the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana at1-(888)-LACOAST for more information.

We understand that plans can change. If, after registering, you find you are unable to attend the event, please email and let us know if you have to cancel so we can make your spot available to other potential volunteers.
Additional project partners include: State Farm Insurance, the Disney “Friends for Change” program, and Restore America’s Estuaries.
