Air Potato Pulling Party
Help Save the Native Plants and Bird Habitat on Grand Isle

Air potato vine is a threat because it is able to grow at an alarming rate of 8 inches per day. This vine is able to rapidly climb to the tops of trees, affecting their natural intake of sunlight and other vital resources. Small native plants are at greatest risk of being smothered by air potato.

Hosting Organizations: The Grand Isle Music Festival, The Nature Conservancy of Louisiana, and Grand Isle Community Development Team
Date: Saturday, August 17
Location: Meet at Grand Isle Multiplex (3101 Hwy 1).
Times: 8:00-8:30 a.m. - Sign up in multiplex
