Volunteers planted 100 cypress trees on the Lafitte Greenway on Friday and plan to plant 100 more over the weekend.

Sustaining Our Urban Landscape, or SOUL, and Friends of Lafitte Greenway partnered up for a multi-year project to plant 1,000 bald and pond cypress trees along the Lafitte Greenway. This year, they planted 300 along the bike and pedestrian path. 

Each tree is mapped and tracked to collect data on the different environmental benefits they might have on the area. 

The trees were donated by corporate sponsors.

Best Spots for Brews, Booze, Bagels and more

The little corner of St. Louis Street and North Dorgenois is hopping. Tucked along the Lafitte Greenway, a blue warehouse space has been transformed into a gathering spot for brews (both beer and coffee), freshly baked bagels and brunch and a lively outdoor patio stopping spot. Anchored on the corner by Flour Moon Bagels (dine in or take away a dozen fresh bagels or sample a sandwich or open faced tartine), as well as the newly relocated Hey! Café & Coffee Roastery (a coffee fan favorite brew spot), the corner recently welcomed the opening of Skeeta Hawk Brewing, the latest homegrown brewhouse in the city. Make this your go-to stopping spot for refreshment while out for a bike ride or stroll along the Greenway, or a pre- or post- movie hang while catching the latest flick at the nearby Broad Theater.

Heading down the Lafitte Greenway by foot or by bike, or maybe on the adjacent street with the windows down, you first get a whiff of roasting coffee, a morning smell no matter what time of day it happens to be.

That’s followed immediately by the warm, bakery aroma of bagels in the oven. Turn the corner and you find unmistakable evidence of a brewery, with people spilling out on the patio beer garden sipping Belgian ales.

Volunteers from the GROW nonprofit partnership, along with dozens of U.S. Navy personnel in town for NOLA Navy Week, planted 100 cypress trees on Thursday(April 21) at the Lafitte Greenway in New Orleans. The 100 trees are the first of a thousand that the group intends to plant. A single bald cypress can absorb 880 gallons of water in a day. Native flowers will be planted in lowland meadows, to reduce maintenance costs and encourage pollinators.
