Service Day in New Orleans
July 23rd, 8:00-11:00AM
Grab your gloves and shovels and join us for Bayou Bienvenue Platform Maintenance in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward. The platform at the end of Caffin Avenue overlooks a 400 acre “ghost” swamp, a remnant of a dense freshwater cypress tupelo forest that existed in the city boundaries until roughly 50 years ago. Saltwater intrusion, caused by the construction of the MRGO in the 1960s, killed the cypress swamp in the Lower 9th Ward and destroyed tens of thousands of acres of wetlands that once protected the Greater New Orleans area. Only five miles from the French Quarter, the platform already attracts Orleans Parish locals and tourists alike who can learn about the history of the swamp and see an example of the coastal land loss problems that extend throughout southern Louisiana.
Florida and Caffin Ave, Lower 9th, New Orleans
