The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) is a non-profit organization that has been working to restore and protect a sustainable coastal Louisiana for over 25 years. One way that CRCL accomplishes its mission is through its Restoration Program which works to restore coastal habitat by engaging and educating volunteers in a variety of wetland restoration projects. Since 2000, CRCL’s Restoration Program has recruited over 9,000 volunteers to help restore 3,700 acres of coastal habitat.

CRCL is looking for a passionate, motivated, and organized individual to serve as the Volunteer Coordinator for Restoration Program. From dune restoration on the Cameron shoreline to marsh plantings in Terrebonne Parish to cypress forest restoration on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, CRCL’s Restoration Program partners with local, state, and federal agencies, landowners, corporations, and other organizations to utilize volunteer labor for on-the-ground restoration projects across the coast.

The Volunteer Coordinator will recruit and lead volunteers on multiple on-going volunteer-based coastal restoration projects, identify project sites, coordinate with project partners, and assist with program promotion. The Volunteer Coordinator must be an innovative and outgoing team player able to work with numerous partners, federal and state agencies and volunteers.
