About CRCL

CRCL is Louisiana’s longest-standing, statewide organization dedicated to coastal restoration, and is made up of thousands of people with many points of view, including business leaders, scientists, boaters, land owners, fishermen, sportsmen, and volunteers. For the past 25 years, CRCL has united various stakeholders under the common mission of protecting and restoring a sustainable coastal Louisiana. We work with local, state, and Federal governments to develop and implement large-scale restoration plans and programs. CRCL is a champion for sound policies and established science. Our workshops and conferences create forums for innovative projects and strategies to restore coastal Louisiana. CRCL advocates for robust and defendable scientific practices and coastal policies that build land and preserve the Louisiana way of life on our coast.
