Land Trust for Louisiana is proud to partner once again with J.M. Burguieres Co., Limited to create the Marine Bayou Mitigation Bank. Founded in 1877, J.M. Burguieres Co. is the largest single family-owned land holding and acquisition company currently in operation in Louisiana, with operations in Florida, Texas, and Louisiana.
This project is a great example of how multiple partners can bring about land conservation!
Located in Pointe Coupee Parish, Marine Bayou is privately owned and consists of 84.32 acres of flat sandy type soil that will be restored to the area’s original hydrology. In addition to the re-establishment of the forests and fresh water marshlands, we also will see the restoration of currently impaired aquatic functions important for the area.
