Welcoming Spring

With rising seasonal temperatures in climatic Louisiana, now is the time we begin to see the natural nourishment of wetland vegetation.  The regrowth and flourishing of grasses and related plant life, as well as the warmth of the spring sun, awakens the surrounding ecosystem of coastal life.  While beautiful in sight, wetland vegetation also holds grave importance to the protection of inland regions by decreasing storm surge impact, in addition to its sponge-like capability to soak up excess flood waters. Sustenance of these aquatic plants is crucial to the survival of not only wetland environments, but ultimately the survival of coastal Louisiana.
