Date: Sunday, May 22
Time: 9:30 am – 1 pm

This leisurely paddle will follow the bayou through a scenic cypress forest. We’ll wrap up with a delicious shared meal prepared by the local hunting club!
Bring your camera, your curiosity, and your bug spray! We’ll provide the views, food and drink, and information about how land conservation is a vital tool for protecting Louisiana’s natural treasures. The $40 registration fee will go towards funding our conservation work across the state – including restoring the ridge at Maurepas Swamp Preserve, which was heavily damaged by Hurricane Ida.
