The Coastal Society is working with the National Academy of Sciences’ Gulf Research Program, Louisiana Sea Grant, the Louisiana Science Teachers Association, and other partners to offer a full-day, in-person career workshop in association with the biennial conference of Restore America’s Estuaries in New Orleans. The near-final program is available here:
This workshop includes separate tracks for our “Coastal Futures” (high school and early college students) and those who are further along on their “Coastal Career.”
This full day will be spent south of New Orleans along the Mississippi River. The program features a half day of presentations followed by lunch and a half day in the field seeing coastal careers in action. No special clothing is needed. Transportation will be by school bus from and returning to the New Orleans Riverside Hilton. Your other option is to drive and meet us in Docville (use the link above for our full itinerary) unless you wish to meet us on site. Minors will need to have a participation form signed by a parent or guardian.
Please register with Eventbrite here. While generous contributions by our sponsors will allow us to offer the workshop free, we do require registration as we need to accommodate any food restrictions and are limited by space. Registration will remain open till 5pm CT on November 30, 2022; there will be no on-site registration.
