Nicholls State University and the Port of South Louisiana have partnered to boost coastal restoration research at the Nicholls Farm.

“The Port of South Louisiana is pleased to be a part of the coastal restoration research at Nicholls State University,” said Paul Aucoin, executive director of the port. “We realize how important coastal restoration is to Louisiana and collaborating with Nicholls is one of the ways we can contribute.”

As part of the agreement, the Port of South Louisiana has provided $18,000 to the biology department for research at and maintenance of the Nicholls Farm.

Dr. Allyse Ferrera, professor of biology, added: “With this money, Nicholls can continue to make an impact in the fight to save our coast while offering a unique experience for our students. This money will allow us to continue to offer this unique experience to our students and help us make an impact on the coast.”

The 277-acre property approximately three miles from campus serves as an environmental research and educational center for Nicholls and other partners, such as the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program and the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana.
