Woodlands Trail and Park Needs Volunteers

Woodlands Trail

The destination for hundreds of species of migrating birds each year, Woodlands Trail encompasses 609 acres of land in Algiers and is part of the America’s Wetland Birding Trail.

Some fantastic volunteers spent this past weekend helping clear trails, installing signs and putting up wood duck nesting boxes.  But the work is not complete.  The call is out for more volunteers and for donations to assist with continuing the clean up and improvement efforts on National Public Lands Day (September 27th) from 9 am to 1 pm.

Donations of the following items are needed:

  • Auger
  • 100 one gallon plastic pots for repotting seedlings
  • Potting soil41067
  • Limestone
  • Brush mower
  • A volunteer that can do small carpentry tasks

Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes and bring their own work gloves.  Lunch for those who pre-register is being donated by the Wal-Mart Foundation.

Given the importance of the wetlands to the Louisiana coast and to the survival of these migratory birds, I hope that some of you can give just a few hours of your time!
