3/22 Nola Blog

Posted from Austin, Texas, United States.

Today we started our day off in the fields finishing our transect. We came across a heavy set of Blackberry and tree’s which was challenging to get through at first. Once we finished at the fields, we went to the Historic New Orleans Museum and viewed different time eras of artwork. After viewing the art, we meet Harry Shearer, creator of the documentary “The Big Uneasy”. Harry explained to us Americorp’s failure with the construction of the levees. Along with this Harry explained to us the corruption of politics as well and how this all came together to harm the New Orlean’s society. After speaking to Harry we visited, Mike spoke to us about the wetlands environment and AmeriCorps participation in Katrina as well. After all, we enjoyed our night watching a pianist at a joint a little out of downtown.
