This program is conducted through partnerships among the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources/Coastal Restoration Division, the LDAF/Office of Soil & Water Conservation and eleven coastal SWCDs. Using locally adapted plant species, an average of 30 linear miles of shoreline and interior wetland restoration plantings are implemented each year within the LA coastal zone.
These 30 miles are an aggregate of 20-25 annual planting projects that differ greatly according to environmental parameters, plant materials used and restorative effects. By transferring these restoration techniques through local SWCDs to land owners with whom they establish a long-term working relationship, many land owners are able to knowledgeably and affordably contribute to these restoration efforts.
