John Lopez, Executive Director of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation will speak about "Its successes and goals for the future".

The Lake Pontchartrain Basin is a 10,000 square mile watershed encompassing 16 Louisiana parishes. The Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation was established in response to environmental concerns voiced throughout the Basin.

As the public's independent voice, Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation is dedicated to restoring and preserving the water quality, coast, and habitats of the entire Pontchartrain Basin. Through coordination of restoration activities, education, advocacy, monitoring of the regulatory process, applied scientific research, and citizen action, LPBF works in partnership with all segments of the community to reclaim the Basin for this and future generations.
