Photo of the Day: Barataria Bay

This week, leading up to the Broken Gulf benefit on Saturday, I will be posting a picture and some information about the damage each morning.

Barataria Bay, in Southeastern Louisiana, was used as a hide out for Lafitte's pirates, and before the oil spill, was a rich source of wildlife, including shrimp and muskrat.

Help us fight back against the destruction of the Gulf's wildlife and history by attending Broken Gulf: A Benefit for the Louisiana Bucket Brigade Saturday, July 31 at Eatonville Restaurant. Tickets are available online and are only $10. A raffle will take place at the event with amazing prizes from local businesses such as ACKC and Fiddleheads Salon, and from a Mississippi Eco-Friendly Clothing Artisan.
