Volunteer

Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation's success depends on the dedication and talents of thousands of volunteers. People often volunteer with us because they feel a personal commitment to protecting and restoring our basin, so that all of us can enjoy it. Motivated by this valuable feeling of ownership, volunteers get involved in a variety of fun, interesting events that we hold throughout the year. Learn more

Many of these events are annual, including our Back to the Beach Festival, Beach Sweep, Fishing Rodeo, Golf Classic, and Northshore "Let's Make Waves" Party.

Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation staff also welcomes those who wish to volunteer in our office. Office volunteers regularly offer their time and talents throughout the year. Their assistance is invaluable. Learn more

A Generalized Food Web for Lake Pontchartrain in Southeastern Louisiana
Christopher D. Davis

Lake Pontchartrain lies in the heart of the Pontchartrain Basin and is a vast ecological system that is home to
many different species of fish, birds, mammals, and plants. As well as being tremendously important
habitat for local wildlife, it functions as the center of the region’s commercial and recreational fishing
industries. The food web dynamics of Lake Pontchartrain are in a delicate balance due to the quality
of the region’s water and the multitude of organisms involved. It is the purpose of this presentation to
describe the individual roles each organism has in the complex food web of Lake Pontchartrain.
