What is Coastal Roots?
Students from 3rd grade through high school in south
Louisiana are taking part in this project by establishing
wetland plant nurseries at their schools. Students are
growing native plant seedlings that they will plant in a
coastal habitat restoration project in south Louisiana.
There are 40 schools across 18 parishes currently
participating in the LSU Coastal Roots Program.
Students are working with a variety of seeds,
including the Water Oak, Tupelo Gum,
Swamp Red Maple, Loblolly Pine, Nuttall Oak, and Longleaf Pine -
just to name a few.
