Common Ground Relief Wetlands conducts marsh grass and bottomland hardwood tree plantings in the bayous and wildlife management areas surrounding Greater New Orleans. The restoration is conducted for the US Army Corps of Engineers, Louisiana Wildlife & Fisheries and private property owners.
CGR Wetlands has full and half day events which can include propagating plant material in their own nurseries. Canoe trips can also be scheduled. CGR provides all equipment and plant material for the plantings.
