The Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation was established in response to environmental concerns voiced throughout the Basin.
As the public’s independent voice, Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation (LPBF) is dedicated to restoring and preserving the water quality, coast, and habitats of the entire Pontchartrain Basin. Through coordination of restoration activities, education, advocacy, monitoring of the regulatory process, applied scientific research, and citizen action, LPBF works in partnership with all segments of the community to reclaim the Basin for this and future generations.
The Lake Pontchartrain Basin is a 10,000 square mile watershed encompassing 16 Louisiana parishes.
Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundaiton is excited to be working with the Orleans Levee District and Restore the Earth Foundation on the Bayou St. John Marsh Creation Project.
