America's WETLAND education initiatives feature resources for educators, home schoolers, parents and children of all ages. You can download a variety of lesson plans, order an Estuarian Activity Guide, request the ESTYS visit, sign up with our America's WETLAND Conservation Corps, and visit our Resource Center.
The Foundation believes in the importance of educating current and future generations-from the youngest to the oldest-who can act as stewards of the environment and play a key role in the sustainability of our nation's Gulf Coast communities. Please explore our various resources to learn more about the crisis facing Louisiana's coast and how you can do your part to help protect and sustain America's WETLAND.
These nine loveable action heroes are the mascots for the America's WETLAND Campaign's fight to save Louisiana's coast. Each of these animals and their friends live in America's WETLAND and depend on us to save their habitat.
In 2009, America's Wetland officials held a bold series of events designed to focus national attention on the impact of Louisiana's coastal erosion and wetland loss during the opening of hurricane season. The events, dubbed "Storm Warning: Last Stand for America's WETLAND", were large in scope and filled with ambition, but they had to be in the face of such daunting challenges to Louisiana and America's environmental and economical well-being.
This resource center is intended to serve as a reference for the history, present challenges, and future of Louisiana's coastal wetlands - a place we call America's WETLAND. It is a project of LUCEC (Loyola University's Center for Environmental Communication), in partnership with the America's WETLAND Foundation
