The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) is looking for volunteers to participate in a two-day Cypress forest restoration project at Jean Lafitte National Park on January 29th & 30th. Volunteers will help plant nearly 800 trees along spoil banks inside the park. These native trees will help combat the invasive Chinese tallow tree and over time, will produce new nesting habitat for Bald Eagles.
- Directions and additional details will be provided to registered volunteers via e-mail a few days prior to the event.
- Due to the logistics of this event - registration will close at 9:30 am.
- Please note the minimum age for volunteers is 13 and all minors must be accompanied by an adult.
- Physical fitness is required.
- All equipment (gloves, shovels, life vests) and lunch and drinks (with vegetarian options) will be provided to all volunteers.
- Be prepared to get DIRTY. CRCL will be providing knee boots upon request.
We require that all volunteers please register to let us know if you plan to attend. If any additional members of your family/friends are attending, then they must also register.
