The Water Collaborative is participating in the 24 hour giving day hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation to raise money for hundreds of nonprofits in New Orleans! We hope you’ll think of us on May 1st! 🙂 Donate here.

The Avenue Pub, 1732 St. Charles Ave.
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a great beer with a green label and a green spirit! They have teamed up with the Avenue Pub to support local environmental and water management projects by each donating $1 from the sale of every pint of Pale Ale this month. These proceeds will support community initiatives via the NOLA Connects matching fund. More information about current projects can be found at nolaconnects.org.
The fundraiser runs all month, but make sure to mark your calendars for Earth Day on Sunday, April 22 when The Avenue Pub will host an afternoon celebration! We’ll be on hand 1 – 5 p.m. to talk about using smart water management to create a greener Greater New Orleans!
The future site of the Mirabeau Water Garden needs some help with trash pick up! The Water Collaborative is heading over to Gentilly to pick up trash on March 24th for LPBF’s 4th Annual Spring Sweep! Come join us!
