Thank You Volunteers!

Thank you to volunteers from Henderson Hutter Group, Oschner Health Center, UNO, Lusher, Tulane VISTA, Outreach Tulane, Deloitte, and all other members of the Greenway community who came out to clean up and clear up the Greenway following Hurricane Ida.

 

Volunteers made a huge difference clearing up trash, clearing overhanging branches, uprighting trees, removing broken and fallen trees, and removing graffiti along the trail. We are heartened by this show of support and dedication from the members of the community to the Greenway and are proud of the work that has been accomplished.

 

Stay tuned for more developments in the maintenance of the Greenway’s green spaces and for more opportunities to lend a hand!

 

Thank you to Archer Daniels Midland, Cox, and the EPA Gulf of Mexico Division for supporting our stewardship program.
