New Experiences and New Faces: A Year in Photos

2017 was a busy year.

Happy Holidays from the Vanishing Paradise team to all of you!

It's been a really good year full of important restoration milestones. We have enjoyed meeting new people along the way and reconnecting with old faces. Here are some highlights from our adventures this year. Thank you for your continued support, and here’s to a successful 2018 for the Mississippi River Delta and the Gulf Coast.
