Groups Partner on Floating Island Project
Volunteers are needed this month to help with this "floating island" project.
CCA's Building Conservation Habitat Program, in partnership with Shell Oil Company, Terrebonne Parish Government, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, America's Wetlands and Entergy join together to rebuild the coastline in Terrebonne Parish with a "Floating Islands" Restoration Project.
What is it?
This project will create 1,000 to 1,500 ft. of floating islands. This is the first floating island restoration technology that has been used in this way. Each island mat is made from recycled plastics and will have 50-60 plants.
How Does it Work?
The mats, planted with native species, will grow a root system to the water bottom, trap sediments and grow toward and tie into the disappearing marsh. It will strengthen and flourish into a sustainable mass. It will also serve as a fish habitat. For more information on floating island restoration, click here.
Volunteers Needed to Come Help Plant!
