The Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation (LPBF) will hold its 29th annual Beach Sweep, south Louisiana's biggest community cleanup, on Sept. 21st, 2019. Volunteers, partners, and sponsors will help clean up the areas that drain into Lake Pontchartrain by cleaning curbs, ditches, and storm drains along city streets and rural roadways. This project will help prevent our metro area from flooding and at the same time protect Lake Pontchartrain from harmful debris. Beach Sweep is a community cleanup of the entire Pontchartrain Basin.

To say thank you to the volunteers, on Beach Sweep day LPBF will host a picnic for the participants. The picnic not only serves as a way to bring together everyone to celebrate the clean sweep of our region, but also to provide some awareness on caring for the basin everyday. Thanks to our sponsors and partners, volunteers enjoy food, drinks, and music. Beach Sweep is an excellent avenue for stewardship, education, and community relationship building. Sponsor Beach Sweep today and help the rebuilding of the metro area and the health of the entire Pontchartrain Basin.
