MISSION

Bayou Grace mobilizes local and national community in the restoration and protection of coastal Louisiana, with a focus on the rural five bayou communities of lower Terrebonne Parish.

The 5 Bayous:

Bayou Grace serves the rural, largely minority populations in southern Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. The 5 Bayou Communities include:

  • Bayou Point-aux-Chenes— Pointe-aux-Chenes, LA
  • Bayou Terrebonne—Montegut, LA
  • Bayou Petit Caillou—Chauvin, Robinson Canal and Cocodrie, LA
  • Bayou Grand Caillou—Dulac, LA
  • Bayou Dularge—Dularge & Theriot, LA

Community Facts:

Coastal land loss and erosion is a daily reality for many of those who live in the 5 Bayou communities.

  • For many in the 5 Bayous, the daily reality of unnatural land loss and erosion means living in a constant state of recovery and/or anticipating the next flood, be it from tropical storms, hurricanes, or even high tides.
  • Unnatural land loss and erosion in the 5 Bayous and the rest of the Coastal Louisiana is NOT inevitable.
  • Since Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustave and Ike and the BP Oil Spill there is an unprecedented opportunity for Coastal Restoration and Protection for the 5 Bayous and the rest of Coastal Louisiana.
