The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL), Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA), Restore the Earth Foundation (REF), and the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation (LPBF) invite you to register for our Coastal Forest Restoration event on Sunday, March 26th near Manchac, LA. We are looking for 50 enthusiastic volunteers to help us plant 850 native trees on the Lake Maurepas landbridge. By planting in this area of new land, you will help increase soil retention and promote more land growth! Your efforts will also help increase storm surge protection and improve forest resiliency for future storm events.
