The AgMagic on the River experience will be an interactive, visually stimulating environment that will link food and fiber products we use every day to the forests, field crops and livestock produced by Louisiana farmers, ranchers and forest landowners. Featured crops will be displayed in various stages of development, and the importance of interaction between agriculture, the environment, and society at large will be highlighted.
March 21-24, 2023 for school tours
March 25 is open to the public
Louisiana Sea Grant is hosting a Coastal Connections Infographic Challenge at Nicholls State University on Thursday, March 23, 2023 at 6 p.m. in the Bollinger Suite of the Bollinger Memorial Student Union. The competition is open to all undergraduate and graduate students at Nicholls conducting coastal research—including, but not limited to the fields of anthropology, biology, design, ecology, economics, engineering, geography, geology, history and sociology.
In this competition, students will use a mixture of visual imagery and text to effectively communicate their research findings. An infographic is a tool that combines imagery, text and statistical figures to easily convey a subject. They help communicate information quickly and clearly. This Coastal Connections Competition focuses on the ability of students to consolidate their ideas, crystalize their research discoveries and share them using the power of visual media.
Take an interactive, visually stimulation educational journey through Louisiana agriculture. See, explore and learn about agriculture and the environment as well as the important role each plays in our daily lives.
March 27 – March 31 : Open for registered school groups
April 1 – 2 : Open to the general public

The State of the Coast (SOC) Conference is the largest statewide conference of its kind, providing an interdisciplinary forum to exchange timely and relevant information on the dynamic conditions of Louisiana’s coastal communities, environment, and economy. The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL), The Water Institute of the Gulf, and the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA) have partnered to produce this forum, the need for which grows with every acre of land lost to the Gulf of Mexico.
SOC2023 consisted of three days of presentations by leading experts in concurrent sessions, keynote presentations, poster sessions, and networking opportunities. More than 1,200 scientists, landowners/managers, federal and state agency personnel, local officials, industry and business leaders, resource users, and interested citizens attended the sixth iteration of this biennial conference.
The anticipated deadline for full proposals is 11:59 pm CDT on June 6, 2023. This date and time will be confirmed/adjusted as needed when the encouragement/discouragement e-mails are disseminated.
Every summer, LDWF hosts the Wetland Education Teacher Workshop, or WETshop, a week-long, coastal awareness workshop for teachers. Through WETshop, teachers work with scientists to learn about Louisiana coastal wetlands, issues, and history. WETshop focuses on making teachers into wetland stewards so they can educate their coworkers and students in their home parishes about coastal land loss and restoration. Workshop experiences provide teachers ideas to incorporate Louisiana phenomena-based science into the classroom at all grade levels. After teachers complete the workshop, we encourage them to implement a 6-hour wetland stewardship project in their parish with their students and community.
Teachers interested in WETSHOP 2023 can visit www.wlf.louisiana.gov/page/for-teachers or contact Heather David at [email protected] with questions.
