BAYOU SAUVAGE CLEANUP
- As you may have heard, the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Preserve in
New Orleans East has been the victim of widespread littering, dumping
and other abuses. There's going to be a cleanup in a few weeks to help
restore our largest urban nature preserve to its natural state. I want
to pass on the following information from the Crescent Bird Club, which
is helping to lead this effort. I hope that many of you can help!
WWNO has just apprised us of the change in the meeting place for the big
Bayou Sauvage NWR cleanup on 3/16/02, as follows:
"Registration will now take place in the parking lot at the Boat Launch
instead of at the Nature Center from 8:00 am until 9:00 am on Saturday,
March 16th - with PJ's coffee and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts served to all
register; [there will be] cleanup of trash along US 11 from the boat
launch back down to Chef Highway - and of the area around the boat
launch - from 9:00 am until noon; jambalaya lunch at the Ridge Trail
Pavillion - from noon until 2:00 pm."
Directions to Boat Launch: Drive on I-10 East through New Orleans East
and take Exit 254 (the North Shore, Irish Bayou, Highway 11 exit).
Drive west on Highway 11 about 2.5 miles, and the Boat Launch will be on
