STEM Library Lab is sponsoring a pre-packaged Service Learning Field Trip to CRCL’s Restoration Headquarters in Violet, LA. Service Learning ties academic content to relevant, hands-on community service. The program curriculum is aligned with Louisiana science standards for grades 8-12. Students will learn about the Louisiana coastal land loss crisis while aiding in restoration efforts by bagging oyster shells into mesh bags in preparation for reef construction.

The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to unite people in action to achieve a thriving, sustainable Louisiana coast for all. Incorporated in 1988, CRCL represents a unique mix of businesses, local governments, industries, scientific communities, national and local conservation groups, hunters, anglers and a broad spectrum of concerned residents who share a common vision and commitment to the sustainability of coastal Louisiana. The common vision of these varied and diverse interests is the driving strength of CRCL, the most effective and recognized coastal advocacy organization in the state. Recognizing that Louisiana’s coastal land loss will have dramatic impacts on the nation’s energy, navigation and fisheries interests, CRCL works at the state, local and federal levels to ensure that restoring and protecting coastal Louisiana is a top priority for our state and the nation. In addition to our role as advocate and watchdog, we also serve as responsible stewards of Louisiana’s rich coastal wetlands. We facilitate and fund restoration projects through our Native Plants Program and Oyster Shell Recycling Program, and we work diligently to raise awareness and educate others about the importance of preserving and restoring coastal Louisiana.​​ This multifaceted, comprehensive and coast-wide approach to coastal restoration distinguishes CRCL from every other civic and environmental group in the region. Like the Mississippi River Delta, our work is constantly evolving. You can be part of the solution.
