#OurCoast: From the headwaters to the delta
Standing in the warm knee-deep water, I remembered being a kid and walking across those headwaters. I imagined the wetlands that would grow in this place, fueled by the dirt and fresh water of the Mississippi River. And in that moment, I felt a connection to Louisiana’s coast and knew it was a special place I wanted to help protect.
