WHAT: Tulane University will host a media tour of its new riverfront campus, which will be devoted to the study and preservation of Louisiana's waterways and coast.  A light lunch and drinks will be provided to media.

WHEN: 1 p.m. – Thursday, Sept. 15

WHERE: (1350 Port of New Orleans Way) next to Mardi Gras World.  Parking will be available at the facility.

WHO:  Mike Blum, Tulane associate professor for the department of ecology & evolutionary biology, will conduct the tour and will be available to answer questions about the facility.

MORE: The facility is roughly 6,000-square feet and is split between two primary programs: research and outreach.  The campus includes a wing dedicated to research with offices, conference space, classrooms and laboratory space, along with space for research boats, equipment storage and access to the Mississippi River.

The facility is also configured to host a partnership with the Water Institute of the Gulf.  A public forum to support workshops and conferences makes up about one-third of the overall footprint.

Tulane University formally dedicated the facility during a ceremony on Sept. 14.
