Come see us at other LPBF events.


Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation's success depends on the dedication and talents of thousands of volunteers. People often volunteer with us because they feel a personal commitment to protecting and restoring our basin, so that all of us can enjoy it. Motivated by this valuable feeling of ownership, volunteers get involved in a variety of fun, interesting events that we hold throughout the year. Learn more

Many of these events are annual, including our Back to the Beach Festival, Beach Sweep, Fishing Rodeo, Golf Classic, and Northshore "Let's Make Waves" Party.

Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation staff also welcomes those who wish to volunteer in our office. Office volunteers regularly offer their time and talents throughout the year. Their assistance is invaluable. Learn more

While helping to Save Our Lake & Coast is the greatest reason to sponsor an LPBF event, there are many other benefits—including having your name placed on promotional materials and signage, recognition in our newsletters and Annual Report, tickets to special events, and more.

Sponsors of the Back to the Beach Run/Walk receive several benefits, including their name or logo on the Run/Walk T-shirt and entries into the Run/Walk. For sponsorship details, please contact Angela Dorvin at (504) 836-7117 or
