Monica Fisher and Dean Wilson of Atchafalaya Basinkeeper talk about the upcoming Save the Basin Art Auction
Guests speakers will be discussing the organizations’ most critical achievements in the Basin and some the most troublesome hurdles to date facing our progress in conservation.
This all day event brings together communities around South Central Louisiana in support of the beautiful Louisiana wetlands we all cherish. The Atchafalaya Basin the most productive swamp in the world and is vitally important to Louisiana’ Cajun culture; it supports a unique ecosystem of cypress-tupelo swamps found nowhere else on the planet, provides a habitat for our fishing and crawfishing economy, and plays a significant role as a safe harbor for thousands of migratory birds as well as protecting millions of people in South Louisiana from Mississippi River floods.
All proceeds from the event – including 10 percent of all food – will go directly towards protecting and restoring the Basin.
