The University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s American Society of Civil Engineers student chapter recently earned a stewardship award from the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana.

The award recognizes work related to preserving Louisiana’s coastal wetlands. UL Lafayette’s ASCE chapter was recognized last month at the coalition’s State of the Coast Conference in New Orleans.

The yearly awards observe “outstanding commitment to the coast” and “significant contributions to the restoration and conservation of Louisiana’s coastal wetlands,” according to a press release.

The chapter has helped the coalition and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries on restoration and conservation projects.

The American Society of Civil Engineers is based in Washington, D.C. It is the oldest engineering society in the nation.

The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana focuses on outreach, restoration and advocacy. Learn more: https://www.crcl.org.
