Storm Aware and Prepare
May 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Pontchartrain Conservancy and NOLA Ready are proud to host the third annual Storm Aware and Prepare event at the New Canal Lighthouse located at 8001 Lakeshore Drive in New Orleans. This free, family-friendly event will provide hurricane preparedness information ahead of the most active part of the 2023 hurricane season. We invite community members to come and learn how to clean storm drains in their neighborhood and log their cleanups. Pontchartrain Conservancy will be giving away cleanup supplies. Participants who log their cleanups will be entered for a chance to win a generator, provided by CORE. Partner organizations, including NOLA Ready, will be onsite to provide information and answer any questions for community members. In addition to hurricane prep resources, and cleanup information, this family-friendly event will include coastal educational activities for adults and children provided by Pontchartrain Conservancy. Valerie’s Snoballs will be also onsite providing snowballs for purchase.
