Bayou Auguste Restoration
The Bayou Auguste Restoration project was a community based effort with several partners working together to improve the natural function of the bayou. Decades of neglect and surrounding development had resulted in portions of tidal marsh being filled and the natural habitat being affected by garbage, pollution, and invasive plants.
Project Goal: To cleanup and restore Bayou Auguste and work with various community partners to improve stormwater practices, and help the neighborhood reduce garbage and pollution that ends up in the natural environment. Additionally, create trails and overlooks for walking and viewing nature.
Community Partners: Biloxi Housing Authority, Biloxi Public Schools, City of Biloxi, Cypress Environmental Science and Management, Gulf Coast Community Design Studio
