Adopt a Tree
Adopt-a-Tree for education, in memory of someone, or even to honor someone. You can choose the type of tree you'd like to adopt, too! All proceeds from adopted trees help to support the educational, recreational, and environmental goals of Black Bayou Lake National Wildlife Refuge. Names of adopters (and those memorialized or honored) are displayed on a plaque inside the Visitor Center. FoBB is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so your donations may be tax deductible.
A native plant arboretum, including your adopted tree species, has been developed in the public-use area near the Visitor Center. Over 100 species of trees and shrubs native to Louisiana have been planted along an easily accessible trail. This arboretum is already contributing to the beauty of the natural landscaping as well as serving as a valuable teaching resource for area educators
There are big trees, small trees, skinny trees, fat trees--a wonderful assortment. Names of adopters and their chosen tree species are displayed on a beautiful plaque in the Visitor Center. Plus, you will receive a certificate, suitable for framing.
