WASHINGTON — Rep. Jeff Landry, R-New Iberia, was born eight months and a day after the original Earth Day, April 22, 1970. He grew up loving the outdoors with ambitions to work for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. He started work on a degree in wildlife management at the University of Southwestern Louisiana and, after returning from National Guard service to find that they had eliminated that degree program, got his bachelor of science degree in environmental and sustainable resources with a minor in biology.
