03.27.2020 | In Delta Dispatches Radio Show
On today’s show, Simone and Jacques chat with several guests who provide recommendations on coastal resources and content that people can access during this time of quarantine and self-isolation. First, they interview Chris Cook, lighthouse director with Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation, who highlights educational tools parents can use to occupy kids who are at home. Then, Helen Rose Patterson, senior outreach coordinator with the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), unveils the coalition’s new Coastal Care Package, full of recommendations for books, movies, articles and more to keep you informed and engaged. Last up, frequent guest Dr. Alisha Renfro, staff scientist also with NWF, discusses the coalition’s new virtual flyover that takes you on a flight over the Terrebonne and Atchafalaya Basins to learn about coastal restoration from the comfort of your couch.
