NRCS LA-39 Gentilly Unit Vegetative Planting Project
In the spring of 2017, Stream Wetland Services (SWS) contracted with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to grow and install 26,700 trade gallon containers of California bulrush (Schoenoplectus californicus). SWS utilized its nursery facility to produce the wetland vegetation for this project. The project is located near New Orleans, LA on the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge. The project site consisted of shallow open water with a firm substrate. SWS used a crew of 12 men and two boats to install the vegetation as per the project specifications.
