Wetland Ambassadors Team Header

The Wetland Ambassadors Team works to bring awareness to the state’s wetlands and the threats they face. Team members spend the year developing coastal and environmental literacy and professional skills as they give presentations, lead activities, and exhibit at major events in their communities and the state.

Ambassadors attend training retreats and educational opportunities where they grow through activities and hands-on experiences in wetland ecology and natural resources, as well as develop skills such as public speaking. The team also gets the chance to explore different career options by interacting with wetland-related professionals such as agents and biologists with Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

Participation in this program is available to 4-H members in grades 9 – 12 statewide. The application process for this opportunity usually starts in March and ends in June of each year. For more information, contact Catherine Fox at cfox@agcenter.lsu.edu.
