Coastal Restoration Geeks Unite!

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

LNW_ChenierIf our travel budget were not already AWOL, we would be landing in Lake Charles right about now for the Chenier Plain Symposium Jan. 8–9 hosted by the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana. Many of the major people in coastal restoration will be there, talking about some technical but very important topics, such as the function of wetlands in damping down hurricane storm surges and about how Louisiana needs multiple lines of defense.

Those who can get over to Lake Charles should definitely make the trip. Bloggers who can help spread the word are encouraged to write it up—and celebrate the CR heroes such as Steven Peyronnin, John Lopez, Carlton Dufrechou, and Paul Kemp, among others. Click here for the symposium agenda.
