Audubon Action Day

"Join staff and volunteers from Audubon Nature Institute as we protect the beautiful bottomland hardwood forest at Audubon Louisiana Nature Center from dangerous invasive plants.  Invasive species are the 2nd most common cause of environmental disruption, and we have many invasive species that need to be removed from the 86 acres of habitat at the Nature Center.  This park is an important educational and environmental resource for our community, and we need your help to ensure that the native plants and animals have a chance to thrive.  We look forward to working with you to help promote and protect the native plants and animals in this important habitat.  During this Audubon Action Day, we will be pulling up invasive Chinese tallow saplings, removing invasive "bush-killer" vines from trees, clearing trails and picking up litter.  This service project will provide our native plants, and the animals that depend on them, to grow and thrive." -
