Tree Planting with SOUL and Friends of Lafitte Greenway

Join us on as we partner with SOUL (Sustaining our Urban Landscape) to plant the next 100 trees on the Greenway. We have a goal to plant 1,000 Cypress trees as part of our Greenway Grow! Campaign and currently have planted 300 trees along the trail. Volunteer with the Greenway to help us to continue this amazing project.

Thank you to our sponsors Entergy and First Horizon for making this project possible!

A Day On Not a Day Off

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. day, we held a day of service on the Greenway in partnership with NORD. Over 100 volunteers dedicated their time as we mulched the cypress trees along the trail, picked up litter, and painted final touches on the Shine Together basketball court mural. Thank you to everyone that helped out to keep the Greenway healthy and beautiful.

Supernova 2022

Thank you to our sponsors, community partners, and of course, the 7,000 attendees that made all three nights of Supernova shine! It was our goal to have a bigger and better Supernova and with your help, we were able to do just that. We appreciate you all for supporting the Greenway.

Stay tuned for another spectacular Supernova this December.
