Several groups are partnering up to host a workshop aimed at landscape resiliency and revitalization.

Bayou Vermilion Preservation Association (BVPA), T.E.C.H.E. Project, and Acadiana Native Plant Project will hold the Reviving Resilient Landscapes workshop on Saturday, October 24, at Parc des Pont Breaux in Breaux Bridge. The event starts at 9 a.m and lasts until 11 a.m.

The workshop is part of a series by the groups to reach out to the public and promote watershed restoration and resiliency in Louisiana landscapes. Creating resilient landscapes with native plants is important for reducing erosion, managing stormwater runoff, and adding habitat value to landscapes.

Those who attend will have the chance to learn about bankline stabilization through the addition of native plants to waterways. Native plants will be given away to those who register.

Tickets are free, but space and plants are limited. You can register HERE on Eventbrite or through the Bayou Vermilion Preservation Association Facebook page. Only 25 participants will be accepted, but there are enough plants for 50 participants. Those who register only for the plant pick will be able to drive up and receive their free native plants during the event.

Social distancing will be maintained; all attendees older than two years old are asked to wear a mask. Those who drive up are also asked to wear a mask.
