Description

The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) is excited to have you join us to CRUSH Louisiana's coastal threats! The C.R.U.S.H. Project, or Communities Restoring Urban Swamp Habitat, is CRCL's newest project to plant 5,000 trees along the Lake Maurepas landbridge in Akers, LA and in the Central Wetlands Unit in St. Bernard Parish, LA. With support from the Environmental Protection Agency and the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation, this project will help restore and sustain the quality of wetlands within the Pontchartrain Basin watershed as well as facilitating the conversation about coastal restoration to local stakeholder communities.


Important information:

  • Directions and additional details will be provided to registered volunteers via e-mail a few days prior to the event.
  • The drive to Lake Maurepas is more environmentally friendly and fun with friends! If you are interested in carpooling, please post to our message board (Link Here). If you can offer a ride, please include the capacity of your vehicle and where you are driving from.
  • Volunteer check-in will be from 9:00 to 9:30 am.
  • Please note the minimum age for volunteers is 16. No one under 16 will be allowed to participate in any capacity, sorry, no exceptions.
  • All equipment (gloves, shovels) as well as lunches and drinks will be provided to volunteers. Waterproof boots available at a first come first serve basis.
  • Volunteers will be planting trees in the marsh. This is a dirty and strenuous activity so physical fitness is required.

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. You can register to volunteer at the top right of this page.

Volunteering 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 by emailing Katie Denman at katie.denman@crcl.org.
  • If you'd like to bring a group to volunteer, please let us know, and we'll try our best to accommodate you.

For inquiries about any of the above, you can contact our Restoration Program Associate, Katie Denman, at katie.denman@crcl.org.
