Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana

CRCL is Louisiana’s oldest, statewide non-profit organization dedicated to coastal restoration. CRCL was established in 1988 by a small group of visionaries who could see the importance of the land loss issue before it was well recognized. The group included a diverse set of interests including lawyers, scientists, fishermen and members of the faith-based community. While CRCL has evolved over the years, growing from a small policy shop, to a multi-faceted organization with expertise in policy, science, outreach, and on the ground restoration, the inclusive character of the organization has remained central. CRCL brings together a diverse and non-partisan set of interests through its Board of Directors and partnerships. Through volunteers who plant marsh grasses and trees across our coast, membership, conferences and newsletters, CRCL connects with thousands of people each year. CRCL is viewed as a reasonable, credible and informed voice on issues of coastal restoration.
