Here are some photos I took while working out in the marshes around Barataria Bay, Louisiana. I had no idea we were actually going to get IN the water, as one of the volunteer coordinators demonstrates below. Read more about this experience on the Matador Change blog here.
An old fishing boat at the dock we left from.
These “terraces” were dredged to make levees on which to plant tufts of marsh grass.
The small clumps of grass will grow quickly into large bunches and replace the marsh that has eroded and died off.
Shrimp boats siting idle–not sure if that’s due to the spill or not.
