A coastal conservation conversation


You’re invited: A coastal conservation conversation

The Lens, with sponsorship from the Mississippi River Delta Coalition, is hosting a panel discussion on the financing of the $50 billion coastal master plan at Loyola University, Wednesday, Aug. 20 from 6 to 8 p.m.

When: Wednesday, Aug. 20 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Where: Loyola University, Miller Hall 114

This event is designed to send the audience home with a solid understanding of how to restore our coast. An example of questions we plan to address include the following:

How far can we go on the current master plan with the funding in place as well as future funding the state believes it can count on?
What will happen to the scope of the master plan, and the coast, if we don’t secure funding sources beyond that date?
What are the chances Congress will step up in the next decade and provide substantial funding?
What are alternative sources of money?
What can you do to help with this challenge?
Who:Mark Davis, Tulane Institute on Water Resources Law and Policy
John Driscoll, Corporate Planning Resources
Kyle Graham, Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority
Douglas J. Meffert, Audubon Louisiana/National Audubon Society
Steve Murchie, Gulf Restoration Network
