Living with Water, Discussion and Site Tour




New Orleanians and our coastal neighbors have long been defined by our resilient relationship with water. As we face the challenges of flooding, land subsidence and aging infrastructure - now more than ever we know how crucial it is to protect and restore our coasts and wetlands - and that we must include water management in our politics, our urban design, and our personal choices at home.
