Volunteers needed to help restore the marshes of Big Branch National Wildlife Refuge.  

The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana(CRCL) invites you to participate in a three day marsh grass planting April 9 - 11 at Big Branch National Wildlife Refuge. We will be planting nearly 13,000 plugs of marsh grass and we need your help! This project will assist in stabilizing the marsh soils with the intention of preventing future erosion and creating wildlife habitat.

Volunteers may register for one or multiple days.

Due to the logistics of this event, we cannot accommodate volunteers arriving late or needing to return early.

Important information:

  • Directions and additional details will be provided to registered volunteers via e-mail a few days prior to the event.
  • Volunteers will be transported to the planting site by air boat. Please note the minimum age for volunteers is 18.
  • Planting in the marsh is a strenuous activity, so physical fitness is required. The site is very muddy so volunteers need to plan on getting VERY Dirty!
  • All equipment (life vests, etc) and lunch and drinks (with vegetarian options) will be provided to all volunteers.

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

Planting on our coast is wonderful way to spend a day and we would like to ensure that everyone gets a chance to have a great experience.

  • If, after registering, you find you are unable to attend, please notify us of your cancellation.
  • If the event registration is full, you can be added to a waiting list.
  • If you'd like to bring out a group, please let us know and we'll try our best to accommodate you.
