To all of our neighbors being affected by Hurricane Laura, you are in our thoughts at Pontchartrain Conservancy.
During the week of the 15th anniversary of Katrina, we know hurricanes are inevitable, but we also know there are ways to protect us in southeast Louisiana through our coast. One of those ways is by implementing our Multiple Lines of Defense Strategy. We still have a long way to go for hurricane protection and plan to do so through your support in us!
Part of caring for the basin and coast includes picking up the trash and debris that can be harmful to the environment and wildlife. I hope you join us for our annual Beach Sweep on September 19th! We will be implementing COVID-19 safety guidelines and are encouraging volunteers to clean up with their families in their neighborhood. Every piece of trash you pick up makes a difference. During quarantine many of us found solace through spending time outdoors. Think of Beach Sweep as a way to give back to the places you have enjoyed these past months!
