Dr. Nyman to Receive Coastal Stewardship Award

Dr. John "Andy" NymanThe Coastal Stewardship Awards return in 2022, honoring the winners named in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Dr. Andy Nyman was recognized in 2020 as one who has made significant contributions to the conservation and restoration of Louisiana’s coastal wetlands.

Celebrate our coastal stewards...​

​Restoring and protecting the natural treasure of Louisiana’s coast is a duty embraced by many people with diverse backgrounds. They are volunteers, students, researchers, sportsmen, governmental and business leaders, and sometimes simply coastal residents who care enough about the future of our state to take action.

​Every year the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana is proud to honor these individuals and organizations demonstrating extraordinary commitment with a Coastal Stewardship Award. These awards are CRCL’s highest form of recognition for those who go above and beyond for our coast, and we need your help to discover worthy candidates for the honors.  Two special awards will be given in 2022 -- one for stewardship during and after Hurricane Ida and one for stewardship during and after Hurricane Laura.

This year's event is taking place on May 12th in Baton Rouge at the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens.  

John "Andy" Nyman is a professor in LSU’s School of Renewable Natural Resources who has published more than 80 journal articles addressing wetlands. From west of Calcasieu Lake to the mouth of the Mississippi River, he has worked with and learned from graduate students, hunters and fishers, landowners, and employees of NGOs, and state and federal agencies.

Congratulations, Dr. Nyman!
