Toast the Coast, BTNEP EVENT

Toast to the Coast

For the past few years, BTNEP has taken part in the Toast to the Coast campaign associated with National Estuaries Day. BTNEP encouraged people to raise a glass and show their support for Louisiana’s national estuary. Those that participated joined thousands of individuals and organizations around the country celebrating with toasts and other National Estuaries Day events. The purpose of National Estuaries Day, first observed in 1988, is to promote the importance of coastal environments where rivers meet the sea.

Nationwide, approximately 110 million people, or more than half of all Americans, live near an estuary and enjoy the many benefits estuaries provide. These benefits include jobs in industries like agriculture, commercial fishing, power generation, tourism, shipping, and even brewing and winemaking.

Estuaries also provide much more than jobs and wages. They provide habitat for fish, shellfish, shorebirds, waterfowl, and other wildlife. Hundreds of species use the protection of estuaries to breed, hunt, and raise their young. This, in turn, attracts tourists; as many as 180 million a year, according to a 1993 study. The salt marshes and wetlands used by these species also provide coastal residents with protection from hurricanes and storm surges.

Thanks to all that participated in the BTNEP Toast to the Coast campaign.
