Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation's mission is to drive environmental sustainability and stewardship through scientific research, education, and advocacy.
The Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization consisting of a 14-member board of directors representing Basin parishes and regulatory agencies.
The Lake Pontchartrain Basin is a 10,000 square mile watershed encompassing 16 Louisiana parishes. The land use of the region is both rural and urban and is the most densely populated region in Louisiana, including metro New Orleans and the state capital, Baton Rouge. It is one of the largest estuarine systems in the Gulf of Mexico containing over 22 essential habitats. The Basin's topography ranges from rolling woodlands in the north to coastal marshes in the south, with the 630 square mile Lake Pontchartrain as its centerpiece.
LPBF's success depends on the dedication and talents of thousands of volunteers. People often volunteer with us because they feel a personal commitment to protecting and restoring our basin so that we can all enjoy it. Motivated by this valuable feeling of ownership, volunteers get involved in a variety of fun and interesting events that we hold throughout the year.
LPBF's staff also welcomes those who wish to volunteer in our office. Office volunteers regularly offer their time and talents throughout the year. Their assistance is invaluable.
Please note that LPBF does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.
