HandsOn New Orleans Day: Restore Louisiana's Wetlands

Wetlands Plant Center

City Park’s Wetland Plant Center is a plant nursery dedicated to growing native Louisiana wetland plants to be transplanted to the coast. It was started by a number of partners following Hurricane Katrina, including the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the LSU AgCenter. Since then, thousands of volunteers have helped to restore Louisiana’s wetlands by transplanting these plants to bayous and barrier islands around the state. The Wetland Plant Center will soon be adding an educational element to the nursery, so park visitors can come and learn about the importance of this precious ecosystem. Our upcoming projects will include planting, propagating, and some light construction.

Each spring, HandsOn New Orleans commemorates its founding as the volunteer center for New Orleans through a day of service and celebration. Known as HandsOn New Orleans Day, the annual event engages both local and visiting volunteers in neighborhood revitalization projects and introduces volunteers to the useful programs and services provided to the community through HandsOn New Orleans. Each HandsOn New Orleans Day focuses its efforts upon a single neighborhood or community in need of revitalization. The most recent HandsOn New Orleans Day saw nearly 200 volunteers work to beautify and clean up Joe W. Brown Memorial Park in New Orleans East. After the clean-up, HandsOn New Orleans staff and community volunteers shared lunch together and discussed the programs and services provided by the organization.

NOTE: Parking is available in front of the bleachers next to the NORD Horse Stables on Harrison Ave between Marconi and Magnolia St.
