Stitching Hope for the Louisiana Coast – Flood Gate

This is a video I created with the background and description of the quilt – please enjoy and share!

In 2018, I attended the OCEANDOTCOMM event held at the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON). That science communication event challenged me to think of different ways to share stories of coastal optimism. Above is a video for one of the quilts I created from information gathered during two fieldtrips.

The title of this quilt is Flood Gate Protection for Terrebonne Wetlands.

This Journeys of Dr. G blog contains additional information about my visit to southern Louisiana, as well as the progress of how the quilt was made. If you are curious to do a deeper dive beyond the video, please check out the following posts:

–> Field trip of levee system with Dr. Alex Kolker
–> Field trip with Dr. Denise Reed that included an ocean-view look at the flood gate
–> Construction of this quilt during the Science-a-Thon


This blog post was created from OCEANDOTCOMM and supported by the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON).
