The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL), Restore the Earth Foundation (REF), and the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation (LPBF) invite you to register for our Coastal Forest Restoration event on April 2nd near Braithwaite. We are looking for 60 enthusiastic volunteers to help us plant 690 native trees in the Caernarvon Diversion outfall. At the end of this event, we will have completed planting 10,000 trees in the Caernarvon region! By planting in this area of new land, you will help increase soil retention and promote more land growth! Your efforts will also help increase storm surge protection and improve forest resiliency for future storm events.
