During 2009, Dave McNamara of Bayou Digital Media partnered with WWL-TV in New Orleans to create a series of half-hour television programs as part of the station’s “Green” initiative.
The programs included segments on restoring Louisiana’s fragile wetlands, a vital step for hurricane protection. Also part of the programs are features on renewable energy and sustainable living.
This segment features a remarkable program at the Harry Hurst Middle School in St. Charles Parish. The teenaged “Wetland Watchers” hold their science class in the Labranche wetlands where they get hands-on environmental training under the guidance of teacher Barry Guillot. The kids pass along their knowledge of the wetlands to students who visit from other schools in the region.
