LEEC eNews Bulletin: Short Course Updates

The LEEC is busy preparing for our Saturday, February 16, 2019 Regional Short Course event. If you haven't registered yet, there's still time! Visit http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/2019-leec-regional-short-courses to see a complete course listing and to register.

Meanwhile, we have a few updates:

1. Participants should register before February 8, 2019 to ensure that they receive all of the pre-event communications from short course organizers as well as materials, lunch and "goodie bags" that will be provided to participants at the event. The registration site will, however, remain open until the day of the event.

2. Due to staffing issues, we have been forced to cancel the Eagle Tour. Participants who registered for the tour should contact Thomas Gresham tgresham@wlf.la.gov to make alternative plans.

3. The location for the short course titled Teach Wild: A Lesson on Marine Debris has changed to the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, 1 Canal St, New Orleans. This will allow participants to see the fantastic Washed Ashore art exhibit on display at the aquarium now. Participants will receive instructions on where to park and how to enter the aquarium in the week preceding the course.

4. Attendees should meet up for the Environmental and Physical Effects of Altering the Calcasieu River tour at S.J. Welsh Middle School, 1500 W McNeese St, Lake Charles, LA 70605. The tour will leave at 8 a.m. 

Thanks again for supporting the Louisiana Environmental Education Commission! We look forward to sharing What's Great About Your Part of the State.
