As our sea levels rise and our land in southern Louisiana continues to slip away, it is crucial that we create resources to reconnect with the wetlands and renew our commitment to its survival. The Wetlands Discovery Center, located in Houma, Louisiana, works to educate K-12 students on the potential solutions and challenges we face as a coastal community. We began piloting our Coastal Classroom series in Terrebonne Parish Public Schools this past January. Our wetlands integrated curriculum works in tandem with Louisiana State Educational Standards, the State Coastal Master Plan and the LA SAFE program to help students understand complex issues in science. Initial pre/post-tests have shown that our program successfully achieves the goals of each lesson. By educating our next generation, we are creating environmental benefits into the future.
Coastal Classroom is made possible by grants from
Chevron and the Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Environmental Fund.
