PADDLE BAYOU LAFOURCHE
Registration is now open for the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program (BTNEP) 2015 Paddle Bayou Lafourche event. BTNEP wants to invite residents and visitors from all over the country to travel along the waters of Bayou Lafourche and learn about the culture and heritage that goes along with it.
The 52-mile, four-day paddling trip down the bayou begins Thursday, April 9th, in Donaldsonville, and ends in Lockport on Sunday, April 12th. Paddlers can participate from one day to all four days of the trip. They will be treated not only to scenic natural vistas, but also to a fascinating backyard view of the bayou from the water’s perspective while enjoying camaraderie, food, music, and fun. Paddlers will get a firsthand look at the restoration work being conducted along the bayou, along with a taste of local cuisine, and entertainment every night in a campsite setting. Participants will also receive a souvenir t-shirt, water, and healthy snacks throughout the day. Canoe rentals are available in a limited supply. The trip cost is $40.00 per day, or $150.00 for all four days without a canoe rental. The cost for paddlers renting a canoe is $60.00 per day, or $225.00 for all four days. Preregistration is required.
Local residents not wanting to paddle can also join in the experience by supporting the event from the banks of Bayou Lafourche. Locals are invited to decorate their bayou side and provide signs of encouragement and welcome to our bayou visitors. In the past, visitors have been greeted with local music and cheers as the paddlers coasted down the bayou.
BTNEP started Paddle Bayou Lafourche as an innovative approach to educate residents and visitors about the culture and ecology of Bayou Lafourche, as well as the coastal restoration needs of the area and potential solutions.
Paddlers can register by completing the registration form at www.BTNEP.org, call 985-447-0868 or email Kristy Monier at Kristy@BTNEP.org for registration instruction
