WHAT IS STORM SWEEP?

Pontchartrain Conservancy is hosting Storm Sweep as a month designated to clean up the Lake Pontchartrain Basin and promote storm preparedness education. Hurricane season is on the way, and we intend to be prepared!  Together we'll remove trash and debris so that our catch basins can adequately route stormwater out of our neighborhoods and our waterways can be litter-free!

LOVE THE BOOT CLEANUP

To kick off Storm Sweep 2022, Pontchartrain Conservancy is partnering with Keep Louisiana Beautiful and hosting a cleanup as part of their "Love the Boot" Week. It will be in Covington on April 22 (Earth Day). We will be meeting at the Covington Trailhead for 9 A.M. Gloves will be provided, and the first 25 volunteers will receive a FREE "Love the Boot" t-shirt!
This is the week we come together to show our love for Louisiana. Love the Boot Week is dedicated to cleanup and beautification events in all 64 parishes across our great state. Together we can take positive steps to create a better life for all of us and protecting our state from litter. Click the link below to sign up and for more details!

Join us on May 28th from 10am-2pm at the New Canal Lighthouse

Storm Aware & PreparePNG

We’ll be giving away hurricane prep supplies and information, and there will be information and activities for adults and kids too. We’ll have snowballs for both kids and adults. Get prepared for this hurricane season, and find out how you can help reduce Louisiana’s risk for the future! Presented by Entergy and made possible by our patners: NOLA Ready, Restore the Mississippi River Delta, and All Hands and Hearts.
