Love the Boot With Us

Louisiana’s “Love The Boot Week” is April 18-24, 2022. This is the week we come together to show our love for our state. Love the Boot Week is dedicated to cleanup and beautification events in all 64 parishes. Together we can take positive steps to create a better life for all of us and protect our state from litter. Join The TECHE Project as we tackle the litter issue on the ONLY National Water Trail in Louisiana—the BAYOU TECHE!

Council member Margaret Simon and her husband Jeff picked up trash one afternoon on Bayou Teche.

During this week, we are encouraging our members (and future members) who live along the bayou to pick up trash from their kayak or party barge, plant their bank-line or just clean the bank-line of unsightly garbage. Send us photos of your work to so we can post on our social media.

You can also join us on April 18 to pick up trash between Leonville and Arnaudville, ending at Bayou Teche Brewing for a nice, cold beer!
