In Memorian for Michael Osborne, the Lake Pontchartrain Shell Dredging Affair

Sierra Club New Orleans Group member meeting. Sunday, April 13, featuring Oliver Houck as our guest speaker.

Oliver Houck will discuss the rise of a remarkable set of lawsuits and related actions that would, after many twists and turns, terminate shell dredging in the Lake and along the coast, giving nature a chance to come back from a practice that had outrun its day.

Professor Houck is active in legal proceedings involving wildlife, biological diversity, coastal, and water pollution control problems, and publishes regularly on these and related issues.
