Restore America’s Estuaries’ Conference New Orleans, Louisiana, December 9 – 13, 2006 The 3rd National Conference on Coastal and Estuarine Habitat Restoration will bring timely national attention to the challenges and opportunities to comprehensive coastal ecosystem restoration throughout the U.S., and especially in Coastal Louisiana and the northern Gulf Coast. Habitat restoration at all scales is essential to the very fabric of our lives – the social, economic and ecological well being of humans in the coastal landscape. Through field sessions, participants will see first-hand how the city, the parishes and coastal Louisiana are being rebuilt and restored. We will work to ensure that the Conference supports the recovery process. For more information please visit: www.estuaries.org/conference http://www.estuaries.org/conference
