LDWF to host WETSHOP 2017 for teachers at Grand Isle Research Lab

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) will hold WETSHOP 2017, a coastal awareness workshop for science, history and social studies teachers, July 9-14 at the LDWF Grand Isle Research Lab.

The focus of this six-day workshop will be to provide teachers with an in-depth look at issues related to wetland ecology and coastal land loss in Louisiana. This year, participants will visit one of the largest coastal restoration projects in the world.

Lodging and meals are provided once participants reach the workshop site. Upon completion of the workshop, each participant will receive a $250 stipend.

Teachers interested in WETSHOP 2017 may contact LDWF Biologist Supervisor Angela Capello at 318-623-4661 or acapello@wlf.la.gov.
