The Coastal Plant Ecology Lab Needs You!

Application Due Date: 
Thursday, August 31, 2017




We do research in salt marsh, mangrove, and fresh/brackish marshes in Louisiana and are looking for volunteers to adventure in the coastal wetlands with us (often near Port Fourchon/Grand Isle) and to help process soil and plant samples.

We are broadly interested in coastal wetland ecology, so there are opportunities for individual projects on a wide variety of organisms and questions (we are open to mentoring undergraduate research and have data that can get you started).


To assist in finishing a specific project focused on belowground production, we have limited funding available to actually pay you until the project is completed!
