Coastal Roots Planting

The class of 2023 visited Avery Island last week to help with coastal restoration efforts there. The eighth grade class planted 550 nuttall oak seedlings grown from seed by last year's eighth grade class. Seen here, the orange and pink flags mark the newly planted trees. The mature tress will also serve as a food source for Louisiana black bears. As part of the LSU Coastal Roots program, each year the eighth grade class plants and nurtures seedlings on the Cade campus for the next year's eighth graders to plant. In Louisiana, 50 schools from 21 parishes participate in the Coastal Roots program, a seedling nursery program for habitat restoration. ESA has been involved with these coastal restoration efforts since 2015.
