Bayou St. John is getting new life seven years after being impacted by Hurricane Katrina.   The Mothership Foundation planted five new oak trees on the Bayou on Saturday to preserve a piece of nature.  They are replacing the old oak trees that were damaged during Hurricane Katrina and most recently, Hurricane Isaac.

“We need the shade for our participants.  It’s a picturesque view when all the trees are out, with the canopy and the sun shining.  We want to restore that,”  Jared Zeller, Mothership Foundation President said.

The Mothership Foundation is looking for tree sponsors who will receive and engrave plaques near the trunks of these trees.
