Hello everybody, here are a couple of notes on what we discussed in our second meeting:
Dr. Anthony is willing to allow SCB members and UNO students to fill in open spaces in her Conservation Biology field trips on a first come first served basis. The next trip is Oct. 11 to Lafitte national park. If you are interested email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers Needed to Help Plant Marsh Grass at Big Branch
The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, Restore America’s Estuaries, and The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration invite you to participate in a marsh grass planting October 16th-19th 2013 at Big Branch National Wildlife Refuge, near Slidell. Volunteers will plant nearly 25,000 plugs of marsh grass during this 4 day event to help restore eroding marshes along the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. This project will assist in stabilizing the marsh soils in the hopes of preventing future erosion and creating wildlife habitat. Please note that volunteers can register for one or more days.

Our NOSCB meetings are always held sometime during the first week of the month. Please check back soon for a date and time. All are welcome, so we hope to see you there!
