Greetings! My name is Harmony Hamilton; I am Audubon Louisiana’s inaugural Walker Communications Fellow. In this role, I will be working with Audubon Louisiana staff and supporters to capture the impact the National Audubon Society and its partners are having on birds and people across Louisiana’s coast.

I recently had the opportunity to visit the Caernarvon Freshwater Diversion, just a few miles south of New Orleans, to see firsthand an area in coastal Louisiana that is actually gaining land and learn what implications this might have for a state losing land at an extremely rapid rate. Check out the video to see what is happening down there in the marsh.
