Revolutionizing Coastal Education

The students of South Louisiana are ready to fight to preserve their way of life, but it is our responsibility to arm them with the tools necessary to win this battle. The Wetlands Discovery Center has an obligation to educate these students to adapt for the future. We have the opportunity to lift our young people from the water. By teaching our students adaptability, we teach them to swim and survive.

Revolutionizing Coastal Education

Envisioning the Future

Whether you live along Bayou Terrebonne, work along Bayou Lafourche, or celebrate in the city of New Orleans, we're all in this together. Everyone across the globe faces challenges in the place they choose to live, but the residents of coastal Louisiana face complicated issues. Our land is washing away, but that doesn't mean our next generation has to be lost too.

Envisioning the Future

Environmental Heritage

We live at a very unique intersection between environment and culture where one is dependent on the other. Our Environmental Heritage comes with the great responsibility of ensuring that generations to come will be able to enjoy what this land and water have given us for decades.
