Public Outreach Committee Description

Back to Organizational Chart

The Public Outreach Committee (OC) is comprised of members from the participating Federal agencies, the State of Louisiana, other coastal programs, and non-profit organizations. Only the core group members, representing the CWPPRA entities, are eligible to vote on budget matters. The committee is currently responsible for

  • formulating information strategies and public education initiatives,
  • maintaining a Web site of complex technical and educational materials,
  • developing audio-visual presentations,
  • exhibits,
  • publications and news releases,
  • conducting special events and project dedications and groundbreakings.

Additionally, the committee represents the CWPPRA Task Force at expositions and workshops to promote coastal wetlands restoration.

The Public Outreach Committee performs the functions of communications and public relations for the program on behalf of the Task Force. The primary function of the OC is to coordinate ongoing and future outreach activities with the CWPPRA agencies and the various partner groups and stakeholders. The OC reports to and takes direction from the Task Force. Yearly budgetary planning is coordinated with the Technical Committee.

The Chairman and coordinator for the outreach are located in Lafayette, Louisiana at the USGS National Wetlands Research Center. The Chairman manages OC functions and budgetary issues. The budget allocation for the outreach program is forecasted, submitted for approval, and managed by the chairman. The Chairman and coordinator manage all outreach activities for the TF. The coordinator position interprets for general audiences the scientific functions and values of wetlands, the scientific causes for Louisiana's coastal land loss, and the various approaches underway or being considered to reduce the land loss rate and create new vegetated wetlands. The outreach coordinator also develops and arranges presentations and provides information material for other officials making public comments as well as providing liaison with local officials and media. The outreach coordinator also manages the educational program, which provides information and materials for classroom use throughout the state. The Chairman and coordinator for outreach serve on local and regional planning efforts and act as the liaisons between the public, parish governments, and the various Federal agencies involved in CWPPRA.

Academic Advisory Work Group Description

Back to Organizational Chart

While the agencies sitting on the Task Force (TF) possess considerable expertise regarding Louisiana's coastal wetlands problems, the TF recognized the need to incorporate another invaluable resource: the state's academic community. The TF therefore retained university services to provide scientific advisors to support the Program.

The Academic Advisory Work Group (AAG), under the guidance and direction of the Planning and Evaluation Subcommittee (P&E); provides support during the screening and development, and ranking of candidate and demonstration projects. The AAG works with the Environmental Work Group (EnvWG) and Monitoring Work Group (MWG) in support of their respective work in project development. The AAG also assists the FC in carrying out the feasibility studies authorized by the TF.

The AAG Chairman seat, which is traditionally held by a university academic, leads this group in completing their work.
