THIBODAUX, La. — Entergy Louisiana donated $160,000 to the Nicholls Coastal Center to continue its support for the Coastal Center Coast, Climate and Culture Literacy Program. The program will bring organized presentations, exhibits, group tours, publications and an additional webpage dedicated to the coast, climate and culture.
“This program is dedicated to preserving the Louisiana coastline,” said Phillip May, Entergy Louisiana president and CEO. “In partnership with Nicholls State University, Entergy is committed to enhancing coastal education and outreach initiatives that are impactful today and in the future. Coastal restoration and protection are not only important to us but directly benefit the communities we serve.”
The Coastal Center is set to begin construction in 2023 and work directly with the Bayou Region Incubator to help create jobs and small businesses specific to the Bayou community and the Nicholls Farm to test the real-world application of the center’s coastal research. In addition to research and development, the Coastal Center will also serve as a publicly accessible educational resource.
In 2023, the Coastal Center will begin construction and collaborate directly with the Bayou Region Incubator to create jobs and small businesses tailored to the Bayou community. Additionally, the center will use the Nicholls Farm to test the practical implementation of its coastal research.
