Bringing Nature Back II
Volunteers Needed to Plant Trees at Audubon Louisiana Nature Center
The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana and Entergy Corporation invite you to participate in a forested wetland restoration project at Audubon Louisiana Nature Center. Prior to Hurricane Katrina, Audubon Louisiana Nature Center was named one of the top five urban nature centers in the United States. The Nature Center suffered considerable damage from Hurricane Katrina which devastated its interpretive center, exhibits and an estimated 75 percent of the forest was destroyed.
This project is being completed through a partnership with Entergy Corporation, Restore America's Estuaries, Audubon Nature Institute, RPM Ecosystems, Natural Resource Conservation Service and the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana. Volunteers will plant over 1,000 pots of various species of wetland trees, including bald cypress, red maple and pecan.
When: Saturday, December 12th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
Monday, December 14th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
Tuesday, December 15th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
Where: Audubon Louisiana Nature Center, 5600 Read Boulevard, New Orleans East (behind Joe Brown Park)
All planting equipment (gloves, shovels, dibbles, etc.) will be provided. Lunch and drinks will be provided to all volunteers. You can volunteer for one or more days. Additional information will be provided to volunteers after registration.
