Golden Meadow Plant Materials Center Updated:03/2021

The Golden Meadow Plant Materials Center (LAPMC) in Galliano, Louisiana provides plant solutions to address soil health, air quality, energy, wildlife habitat, erosion control and water quality pertaining to coastal wetland, coastal prairie and Chenier ridge restoration and enhancement in the service areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.  The Center supports NRCS field office activities and programs, academic institutions, private landowners and individuals, and Federal, State, Local and Tribal governments.

The Center is located within the Barataria-Terrebonne Estuary, one of the largest and most productive estuarine systems in the United States. Louisiana accounts for 90% of the nation’s annual coastal wetland loss; land loss occurs as marginal erosion and interior marsh deterioration. Wetland loss is the result of reduced sediment delivery to marshes due to navigation and flood controls on the Mississippi River, salt water intrusion into fresh and brackish coastal marshes, dredge and fill activities and natural subsidence.

Plants developed by the Center have proven effective in reducing soil erosion and promote re-establishment of native vegetation and enhance wildlife habitat. The Golden Meadow Plant Materials Center has developed 9 conservation plants for wetland ecosystem and coastal prairie restoration across the northern Gulf Coast.
