I would recommend a visit to the LPBF if you are a visitor or a resident. There's a lot of history about greater New Orleans and its watershed. It also covers a lot about how the lack of conversation efforts affects and endangers the river parishes. It's also a great place for some fun photo opportunities. Also, the gift shop has some fun stuff. The tour is self-guided, so no muss no rush.

About Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation

Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on supporting environmental sustainability in the Pontchartrain Basin region. The foundation aims to educate about current environmental projects and research as well as preserves the material heritage of the area.

The prime example of a historical site that this organization caters to is The New Canal Lighthouse, the only operating lighthouse in Louisiana. Severely damaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, it was rebuilt using the original wood from the 1890s. Serving as a museum and an education center, this landmark sheds light on how the light, the coast, and the lake blended together.

  • The Building: 49-feet high, this structure was constructed using only wood.
  • Leave Your Mark: Visitors may purchase a personalized brick or a bench which will be installed on the sidewalk or the promenade nearby.
