Louisiana State Museum is presenting a panel discussion of "The Deepwater Oil Spill: Two Years Later" Thursday April 19 at 6 p.m. at the Presbytère.  Dr. Douglas Meffert, Executive Director, Louisiana Audubon Society, moderates.  

Panelists are Dr. Michael J. Blum, Arnold Early Career Professor in Earth and Ecological Science, Tulane University, and Cynthia Sarthou, Executive Director, Gulf Restoration Network.
