Bayou Land RC&D is so excited for Earth Day and the Festival & Green Business Expo, we wanted to do something for Bayou St. John that will remain even after the Fest is over. On the morning of the 21st, we will be planting assorted wetland grasses along the bayou-side! These plants will not only add aesthetic beauty, but will more importantly increase biodiversity and slow erosion.
Join us from 10-12 to plant, and then spend the afternoon admiring your work and hanging out at the Fest. You can join the event on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/events/170910986397216/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or comments.
