Restoration Center

community-based restoration program (crp) banner

Each year in Louisiana, tens of thousands of acres of wetlands are lost through subsidence, erosion and die-offs. When CWPPRA was signed into law, legislators acknowledged the tremendous challenges facing the State of Louisiana because of coastal erosion and wetlands loss. The RC is one of several federal and state agencies that administer funds and provide expertise for broadscale ecosystem-wide restoration projects to stem habitat losses.
