​​​​Bayou Information

​​​​​To raise the awareness of the importance of Bayou Lafourche and its revitalization, through education and informational outreach, and by the creation of recreational and beautification opportunities along the bayou.

Friends of Bayou Lafourche, Inc. was formed to support Bayou Lafourche’s communities by increasing recreational access to the bayou, creating enjoyable shoreline areas and facilities, conducting bayou-related events, and performing outreach and education.  Friends of Bayou Lafourche (FOBL) works to engage more people throughout the region in healthy utilization of the bayou and to promote the understanding, protection, and sustenance of it as a significant natural and cultural resource.  FOBL will create new initiatives, working closely with related agencies, organizations, institutions, and government entities.  Our goal is to transform Bayou Lafourche from one of the most publicly underutilized waterways in the region to a widely attractive, appreciated, healthy, and vital resource that is enjoyed and understood by more people. ​
