Coastal planting

Volunteers and the St. Mary Conservation District completed one of the largest plantings of marsh grass along the parish coast. The effort near Luke’s Landing on June 22 and 24 involved 40 volunteers from Boy Scout Troop 142, St. Mary Parish 4-H and the St. Mary Parish Black Bear Conflict Office along with other participants. Nearly 3,000 one-gallon plants were deposited to help protect the area from erosion that has been occurring for decades.
