Wednesday Why: Show Your Southern Hospitality

No doubt that the folks of coastal Louisiana are a friendly lot and know how to make visitors feel welcome. With the coming of Spring, so come our wonderful volunteers from around the country spending their Spring Break and vacation time with us learning about the national importance of coastal Louisiana and working hard to help us restore and protect our treasure. Our volunteers always enjoy meeting and sharing stories and experiences with the friendly folks on the bayou. If you’d like to join our volunteers in their adventures or would just like to spend some time with them sharing your stories and love for the bayou, please let us know. Give us a call at 985-594-5350 or send an email to diane@bayougrace.org. Thanks, ya’ll!

If you’d like to join the hundreds of participants who’ve answered the question, “Why Should We Save Coastal Louisiana?”, send your submission to photoproject@bayougrace.org. And don’t forget to check out our gallery of photo-project submissions.

Wednesday Why: We Can’t Walk on Water!

Even though we can’t walk on water, we do lots of great things for the nation in coastal Louisiana.  There is no question that the Louisiana coast is a working coast–its residents laboring tirelessly to feed and fuel the nation.   A restored coast is vital not only to the residents and communities of south Louisiana, but is intricately linked to the health and well-being of our nation as a whole.

We can save our Great American Delta. The cost will be high. There is no easy way around it. But what will be the cost if we don’t make this investment for the good of our entire nation?

There is only one coastal Louisiana.   Make a commitment today to do something to ensure that our nation’s wetlands are here today, tomorrow, and for generations to come.

What’s your reason for saving coastal Louisiana?  Send your submission to photoproject@bayougrace.org.  Join the hundreds of participants who’ve answered the question, “Why Should We Save Coastal Louisiana?” and don’t forget to check out our gallery of photo-project submissions.
