Education: 

WE EDUCATE THE PUBLIC ON IMPORTANT ISSUES AFFECTING THE PONTCHARTRAIN BASIN

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR WORK HERE.

Coast & Community Program: 

The coast has always been our first line of defense against hurricanes for southeast Louisiana, so we developed the Multiple Lines of Defense Strategy designed to help save our coast.

THE COAST & COMMUNITY PROGRAM CONDUCTS MANY PROJECTS AROUND THE BASIN, INCLUDING SCIENTIFIC STUDIES, RESTORATION PROJECTS, AND LONG TERM ANALYSIS.

WATER QUALITY: 

We offer free education, technical help, and assistance with permits to the owner/operators of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) in the Lake Pontchartrain Basin.

WE SAMPLE WATER QUALITY AT 10 SITES WEEKLY, AND ANOTHER 10 TEN SITE MONTHLY. CHECK OUT OUR RESULTS HERE.LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR WORK HERE.

Our mission is to drive environmental sustainability and stewardship through scientific research, education, and advocacy.

We love to teach about the basin! We offer field trips, in-class presentations, and service learning opportunities. Come learn with us!

Without help from foundation members, community partners, and countless volunteers, none of this would be possible. Together we can achieve transformational outcomes that improve the basin for us now and for the future.

Sign up for the Basin Bulletin to hear news about current events around the Pontchartrain Basin including information on water quality, coastal issues, habitat, recreation, education, and events at LPBF’s New Canal Lighthouse.
