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 March 23rd, near Manchac, LA.  We are looking for 15 enthusiastic volunteers to help us prepare for our fun-filled weekend of planting. With your help, we will be collecting data on our newest saplings that will be planted in the coming days. We will also be transporting 1,000 trees from the boat launch to the planting site. Not only do your efforts help CRCL in a tremendous way, you are helping accelerate delta land growth in the Lake Maurepas region.
