Join us on June 5 for a paddle on the Maurepas Swamp Preserve! Explore this beautiful wetland forest and see firsthand how the wetland habitat provides a crucial shelter for birds and other wildlife, while contributing to the health and resiliency of coastal Louisiana. Register today!

We’ll be guided by expert birders and naturalists:

Date: Sunday, June 5
Time: 10 am – 3 pm
Location: Chinquapin Launch, 13400 Boat Landing Rd, Maurepas, LA
Canoe, lunch & drinks provided.

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.
