In Memoriam

David Bourgeois

David was co-creator of the LSU Coastal Roots Program and one of its three co-directors. One of David's keen interests was in the propagation of black mangrove seedlings as a means of stemming coastal erosion in his beloved coastal wetlands and estuaries. He was a natural teacher and believed that students could learn best by experiencing the beauty of the wetlands firsthand. He spent countless hours teaching young people about the animals and habitats of Louisiana's wetlands. His positive spirit and quick smile will be missed by all those who enjoyed his company. David passed away unexpectedly in December 2009. We miss him dearly.
