Wednesday Why: Preserving Tradition

03 06 13 WWHeidi, a talented artist who grew up in Chauvin, knows how important it is on the bayou to pass down traditions and shared experiences. If we continue to lose land at the rate that we have been over the last 80 years, it is doubtful that our young people will be able to pass these important experiences on to their children and grandchildren. The good news is that we can save coastal Louisiana if we work together.

If you want to get involved in working towards restoration and protection of our beloved coastal communities and ensure that future generations can throw cast nets and catch crabs and collect shells and paddle pirouges, let us know.
