Educational Kayak Tour of Louisiana's Wetlands

Louisiana Lost Lands Environmental Tours has a mission focused on educating our customer on the importance and impact of the Louisiana Wetlands, and the devastation that’s caused by the everyday dredging and mining taking place on the Louisiana Coast.

You’ll start with an in-depth audio-visual education on the history of this problem, and the proposed cures from our staff of award-winning experts. Then come with us for a first-hand experience into the beauty and peril of the largest wetlands ecosystems left in the lower 48 states. We’ll take you by kayak quietly through cypress swamps guarded by alligators, turtles, owls and eagles for an up-close experience few get the chance to have.

After taking our tour, you’ll see why the wetlands are worth fighting for, and why their loss would be destructive to the residents of Southeast Louisiana, the safety of New Orleans, and the economy nationwide.

Eco-Friendly Notes

The mission of Lost Lands is to educate the public on ways to restore and sustain Southeast Louisiana. In addition, the business is dedicated to conducting tours as sustainably as possible by using stainless steal water bottles, tupperware and very little paper. Lost Lands is also researching ways to improve the way it transports kayaks to cut down on fuel consumption.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

Lost Lands is owned by Marie Gould and Lindsay Pick. Marie has been a resident of New Orleans for over 30 years. Lindsay is a seventh generation New Orleanian. Both women have a strong tie to the region, and believe passionately in spreading the word about the land loss happening around their homes.
