Volunteer

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

Get Involved

Sponsor an Event

Supporting Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation (LPBF) events through sponsorship is an excellent way to broaden your community involvement.  Event sponsorship not only helps area businesses reach thousands of families throughout the Basin, but also supports the Foundation’s important restoration activities, educational programs, and advocacy efforts.

LPBF hosts exciting events throughout the year.  There are a variety of event sponsorship opportunities available to corporations, small businesses, and individuals. Being an LPBF sponsor is about much more than writing checks. It is about building a relationship with LPBF and getting to know us, our mission, and our supporters.
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.

Beach Sweep

The Annual Beach Sweep is a day in September designated to clean up the Lake Pontchartrain Basin.  The Beach Sweep is held in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy.  Over 1,500 volunteers and sponsors team up to help clean up the areas that drain into the Pontchartrain Basin. Sponsors receive several benefits, including recognition at the Beach Sweep Picnic held at the old Pontchartrain Beach site.  For sponsorship details, click here


Northshore "Let's Make Waves" Patron Party

The Annual Northshore “Let’s Make Waves” Patron Party is held in the Fall at the Pontchartrain Yacht Club in Mandeville.  The nautical-themed party offers cuisine from the best local restaurants, cocktails and live music and the evening ends with an incredible silent auction with items to suit everyone’s taste.  Sponsors receive several benefits, including tickets to the party.  For sponsorship details,

Save Our Lake & Coast Golf Classic

The Annual Save Our Lake & Coast Golf Classic is held in March at the Chateau Golf & Country Club in Kenner.
