Volunteers needed in Lafayette area

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

The Coastal Plant Ecology Lab at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette, is seeking adult volunteers to assist with large-scale, experimental barrier island plantings in dune, swale, and marsh habitats at the New Cut barrier island restoration project and Whiskey Island restoration project for the three dates listed below:
  • May 10-14 (New Cut swale plantings)
  • May 24-28 (Whiskey Island dune and swale plantings)
  • We expect a third trip to occur during June

Each of these date ranges encompass a total of 5 days of planting from Monday through Friday. Any amount of help would be sincerely appreciated, whether only a day, a few days, or all 5 days. Each day volunteers will take an exciting boat ride from picturesque Cocodrie to Louisiana's majestic barrier island restoration sites! We recommend arriving the night before your first day of volunteer service to ensure timely morning boat departures.

Please reply to both Mark Hester ((JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) ) and also Christine Pickens ((JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) ), to let us know your availability so that we can plan accordingly. In your reply, please include your full name, phone number, which day(s) you can come, and any other special information.
