CCA Louisiana and Phillips 66 to Expand “Floating Islands” in Lake Charles
The Coastal Conservation Association of Louisiana’s Lake Charles Chapter, Phillips 66, Martin Ecosystems and local students from Pearl Watson Elementary, LaGrange High School, Westlake High School and Episcopal Day School will team up on Friday, April 1st to help rebuild the coastline near Prien Lake with a Floating Islands installation.
Volunteers from Phillips 66 will join local CCA chapter volunteers and more than 100 students to build approximately 2,000 square feet of new wetland island habitat and will then be placed in the water. After they are put in the water, they will be towed to the installation location nearby. Each 7.5 x 19.5 foot “island” will hold 120 plants and will be placed end-to-end and anchored to the water bottom.
