Bayou Lafourche Cleanup 2023
Saturday, April 22, 8 AM

Keep Bayou Lafourche Trash Free!

Join us for this year’s Bayou Lafourche Cleanup! All the way from Donaldsonville to Galliano, hundreds of volunteers join us each year to remove over a ton of trash from the bayou and its bank. This year coincides with La Fete Du Monde Festival, which is known as the swamp pop extravaganza! Located at the pavilion and green space behind Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou Visitor Center in Raceland, it features live music, dancing, delicious Cajun food, games and carnival rides for all ages! The 22nd is Earth Day, so what better day to spend outdoors than one full of bayou fun, protecting and celebrating our culture and land?!

The Basics:
  1. The event is free!
  2. Speaking of free, you’ll also get a complimentary t-shirt to commemorate the day!
  3. All supplies, like trash bags, grabbers, and gloves, will be provided on the day of the event.
  4. Water and small snacks will be provided.
  5. Be sure to wear/bring sunscreen and bug spray.
