St. Bernard Wetlands Foundation

2017 Funded Project – Greenhouse & Tree planting

More than 400 people convened at Docville Farm in 2017 for the first Cook-Off for the Coast. This tailgate party raised awareness of coastal restoration efforts—a cause close to southern Louisianians’ hearts and homes. In total, the event raised more than $4,400, which was granted to St. Bernard Wetlands Foundation in support of tree planting to help reduce impacts from storm surge and flooding, as well as improve water quality and create habitat for fish and wildlife.
