Friends of Manchac Greenway announce pickup

Friends of Manchac Greenway announce the third quarterly pickup will be 9:30 a.m. Oct. 3.

Please meet in the Joyce WMA parking lot at the beginning of the group's LA DOTD Adopt-A-Road Mile for bags, safety vests and grabbers.

Member Ben Taylor said:

- We recommend bringing: a hat, water, sunscreen/rain gear, gloves, a favorite grabber and a bag-spreader stick.

- We’ll follow Covid 19 protocols: no sick people, keep your distance, use a mask when in groups, fist-bumps only.

- You can use your smartphone loaded with the Litterati App. for tracking the litter you find. This is put in their database to help determine who the miscreants are.

- If you or any organization wants to get in on the fun, you can adopt your own mile of the Manchac Greenway by contacting the Louisiana Dept. of Transportation and Development at: or call Ben @ (985) 974-1810.

(We’ll do one more session in late November/early December to complete our annual four quarterly pick-up obligation.)
