The Lake Forest College Environmental Studies Program took the students from its senior capstone seminar, "Causes and Consequences of the Deepwater Horizon Blowout in the Gulf of Mexico," to New Orleans from October 15 to 19.

There the students saw first-hand the issues that make New Orleans, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Mississippi Delta a hotbed of important environmental issues.

We present here a sample of what these students learned during this trip.

Many thanks to the Mellon Foundation and the MacKenzie Fund for making this trip possible.
