support the Common Ground Health Clinic in Algiers, which sees more than
200 patients per week. The clinic is a nonprofit organization that provides free
quality health care for the greater New Orleans community and develops and
provides programs to address community health care needs through
collaborative partnerships.
I am so excited about the Woodlands Trail. I remember Katie Brasted busy on
her laptop years ago (way before most people had one) during gymnastics
class at Aurora Country Club. I would never have imagined that this was her
special project!
Barbara Benson of the University of Louisiana Lafayette and her students in
Naturalist and Docent Practices have volunteered their services to Woodlands
Trail and Park for the spring semester. During the 2006 spring semester,
students received some hand-on experience using GPS equipment to locate
the trail system that was essentially indiscernible following Hurricane Katrina.
This year, Benson's class will be helping the Woodlands Trail and Park move
its vision forward by conducting some site assessments. Brasted visited the
class at ULL on Feb. 14 to provide an overview of the park effort and aerial
and property maps with the students.
Under the direction of Benson, the students are spending two weekends at the
Woodlands Trail and Park site in Belle Chasse this semester to conduct a site
assessment for parking areas and entrance area amenities.
As land has not been acquired for an interpretive center, the ULL students will
evaluate potential sites for one near Woodlands Trail and a potential site in
Lower Coast Algiers.
For information on Woodlands Trail and Park, contact Our Lady of Holy Cross
College, 4123 Woodland Drive, New Orleans, LA 70131 or 106 Avenue G,
Belle Chasse, LA 70037 or call (504) 433-4000.
