Pontchartrain Conservancy (PC) is seeking volunteers on October 2nd from 10am-2pm to assist in weeding and maintenance of our Bucktown Nursery.

PC staff will lead volunteers in weeding the potted trees and adding fresh soil to the pots as needed. Please come prepared with sturdy shoes, sun protection, and water. PC will also be providing drinks and snacks.

Bucktown Nursery is home to over 4,000 native trees including bald cypress, water tupelo, live oak, and green ash. These trees need your help! This upcoming fall, these trees will be planted throughout the swamps of Southeast Louisiana as part of our coastal restoration efforts. Come help support the reforestation of our vanishing coastline.
