We would like to give a shout out to Ecologist Colleen Butler who generously offered to volunteer her services to computerize the landscape design plan for the CSED lots at Florida and Caffin Avenues. The Florida Avenue lot will be planted with red maple, pecan, and cypress trees. The naturalized "island" blooming with goldenrod that currently exists in the rear of this lot will be enhanced with additional plants to further attract butterflies. A community fruit orchard will be planted on the Lamanche Street properties. A perimeter fence of recycled 4x4 posts strung with rope has already been installed.
As per our request, Colleen designed a temporary seating structure for the Caffin Avenue lot to stage groups of visitors who often come to learn more about the Bayou Bienvenue Triangle. She included an attached rain catchment system to provide a water source for the site.
Colleen, we so appreciate your time and effort!
