EMS students present their designs for Louisiana coastal land use and restoration.

In the spring semester of 2012, students from the Applied Environmental Management (EMS 3040) class collaborated with students in Landscape Architecture and Geology & Geophysics classes to take a transdisciplinary look at disturbed coastal systems in Louisiana.

Guest speakers, miniprojects in each of the disciplines, and a field trip to Fourchon prepared the students for the final project.

The culminating task for the student teams was the development of a plan for an area near Fourchon with visions for the near and distant (100 years) future.

On May 10, 2012, student groups presented their projects to a jury of experts and other visitors.
