The president’s proposed budget would have devastating effects on Louisiana’s coast and the people, wildlife and jobs that depend on it. This is hundreds of millions of dollars in funding that our state desperately needs!

How I got involved:
I became interested in the work of Restore the Mississippi River Delta when I was offered an opportunity to highlight their work during a Sunday Service that focused on nature. Since then I have been impressed with the educational and advocacy work done by the Coalition in working to save our coastline and wetlands.
Why I love Louisiana:
I am a native of Louisiana and spent my childhood raised on the water along the Gulf coastal marshlands. Later in life I was involved with the Gulf Coast fisheries industry. The richness of this Louisiana and her coastal lands, waters, villages and reefs are part of who I am and how I know the world. To see harm done to any of it is like harm is being done to my family. I want my grandchildren and their grandchildren to at least retain what is and if possible restore some of what was. I love Louisiana.
