Pointe-au-Chien Living Shoreline Project

The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) is excited to have you join us in Montegut! Launched in June 2014, CRCL’s Oyster Shell Recycling Program recycles shell from participating New Orleans-based restaurants and uses that shell to restore oyster reefs and shoreline habitat across Coastal Louisiana. For the Pointe-au-Chien Living Shoreline Project, we need volunteers to help us unwrap and load bags of oyster shell onto boats, so that they can be transported to the project site. Volunteers will then assist us with deploying the shell into the water. By helping to build the reef, volunteers will play a role in creating a living shoreline that will act as a wave break to help protect a Pointe-au-Chien cultural site from erosion, allow for the growth of new oysters, and create new fish habitat.

Important information:

Directions and additional details will be provided to registered volunteers via e-mail a few days prior to the event.
The drive to Montegut is more environmentally friendly and fun with friends! If you are interested in carpooling, please post to our message board HERE. If you can offer a ride, please include the capacity of your vehicle and where you are driving from.
Check-in will be from 9:00 to 9:30 am.
Please note the minimum age for volunteers is 16. No one under 16 will be allowed to participate in any capacity, sorry, no exceptions. Minors are required to have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian and be accompanied by an adult.
All equipment (gloves, etc.) as well as a light lunch and drinks will be provided to volunteers.
We require that all volunteers please register to let us know if you plan to attend. If any additional members of your family/friends are attending, then they must also register. You can register to volunteer at the bottom of this page.

Volunteering on our coast is wonderful way to spend a day and we would like to ensure that everyone gets a chance to have a great experience.

Registration for this event closes on June 27th at 12pm CDT.

If, after registering, you find you are unable to attend, please notify us of your cancellation.
