About Coastal Area Research Station (CARS)
Coastal Area Research Station

The Coastal Area Research Station’s initial focus was citrus research. Located in Plaquemines Parish near Port Sulphur, the station is now looking at coastal plants and the role these plants have in the state’s fight against coastal erosion. Station researchers are looking at plant varieties such as smooth cordgrass and are trying to select and breed those plants that have the most beneficial characteristics and traits that will help protect or restore areas that have experienced land loss.
