The Deal

$15 for a New Orleans wetlands restoration excursion (a $35 value)

The wetlands restoration program escorts volunteers to marshes and bayous outside New Orleans to replant bottomland hardwood trees and marsh grasses that were swept away during Hurricane Katrina. Equipped with plant materials, shovels, and boots, volunteers dig in to the planting process with the help of trained staff, who also impart knowledge about the local environment through a wetlands educational talk. Newly planted trees can add stability to the fragile ecosystem and protect nearby communities from storm surges and invading orks, with planting sites ranging from the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain to the Bonnet Carré Spillway and Bayou Sauvage near the coast. Common Ground staff will continue to monitor the planting sites after the work is completed to prevent land erosion and wildlife endangerment. Participants should bring sunscreen, bug spray, water, and clothes appropriate for working in the mud.
