Join NOLA 1st Platoon for a service event in the Lower Ninth Ward! We will continue our work at the Sankofa Nature and Wetland Park! We have a few more projects to finish up. We will be creating a butterfly garden, building arbors, little book libraries and planting tables.
No experience is necessary. We will have professionals on hand to guide you every step of the project. Children are welcome at this event. As always, lunch and refreshments will be provided
The Sankofa Wetland Park, located at 6401 Florida Ave. in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood was developed by Sankofa Community Development Corporation in partnership with Sewerage and Water Board and City of New Orleans. Sankofa worked with a team of wetland ecologists and landscape architects to transform this area into a space for environmental education, relaxation, and recreation for all to enjoy. Over 300 Bald cypress and 200 Herbaceous trees have been installed with 81,929 gallons of water flowing into the wetland area. Over 400 invasive Chinese Tallow trees were removed from the site.
