Turning The Tide - A Teaching Guide To Louisiana's Coastal Restoration Problems and Solutions
In 2011, Louisiana Public Broadcasting premiered its internationally acclaimed film documentary, “Turning the Tide."
The purpose of this curriculum is to encourage students to ask questions and to explore how choices being made today will affect their future. “Turning the Tide”
and this companion educational guide encourage students to think about what is at stake in terms of crucial wetland ecosystems, Gulf seafood populations, North American migratory bird and waterfowl populations, the nation’s energy infrastructure and national security, interior navigation and water transport for American produce and goods, and a totally unique American culture.

This compendium or collection of wetlands resources was created by Dr. Pam Blanchard with LSU and Louisiana Coastal Roots. It is designed to offer educators a guide to the best available resources to enhance and support their educational activities related to the preservation and restoration of Louisiana’s coastal habitats and land. The goal of the compendium is to increase the environmental literacy of teachers and our young citizens and to inspire them to become active stewards of our coastal habitats.
