The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL), Chevron, and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) invite you to participate in our Bayou Bonfouca Marsh Restoration event on Thursday, October 17th located within Big Branch Marsh National Wildlife Refuge. We will be preparing and planting native marsh grass and we need your help! This project will assist in stabilizing a marsh creation project and will help establish native vegetation that will create wildlife habitat. Space is limited, so registration is first-come, first-served.
