Our current and previous partners have included federal, state, and local government agencies, as well as community organizations, private-sector businesses, and individual community members.
Bayou Land's talented staff has a wide-range of expertise in areas such as watershed planning, stormwater management and surface water monitoring as well as in native plant identification, restoration and cultivation for seed production. In all of our endeavors we seek to connect our programs with the community through educational opportunities.
Our programs have been successfully tailored to community members of all ages from elementary school children cultivating school gardens to natural resource professionals bolstering their native plant identification skills through on the ground guided workshops.
