BTNEP to hosts open volunteer days in July 

THIBODAUX, LA – The Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program (BTNEP) is giving the public additional opportunities to volunteer in its coastal restoration efforts. The public is invited to take part in its Open Volunteer Days every Wednesday and Thursday in the month of July.

Volunteers are asked to join BTNEP between the hours of 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Native Plant Production Facility located on the Nicholls State University Farm at 104 Thoroughbred Park Drive, Thibodaux.

Volunteers will be transferring recently germinated red mulberry seedlings into containers for grow out or dividing and increasing marsh grasses. Grown out plants will be used in future coastal restoration projects within the Barataria-Terrebonne Estuary Basins. Lunch, water, bug spray, and sunscreen will all be provided.
