CCA Louisiana along with project partners Entergy, Shell, CCA’s Building Conservation Trust and Martin Ecosystems are collaborating once again to build Floating Islands in Cypremort Point.

The project, when finished, will provide 800 linear feet of land. The floating island restoration technology is made from recycled material and planted with native South Louisiana Wetlands plants like mangrove, seashore paspalum and smooth cord grass.

School children from local area schools will help with the build as part of their Earth Day project.

The installation is set for late April, early May, depending on the spring weather.
