KTBS on Coates Bluff, Demerath to speak on Coates Bluff as a model for increasing urban nature appreciation, Pedro and Lewis put ABS on LANO's map

Some developments over the week:

Robert Trudeau was interviewed by KTAL television news on the Coates Bluff trail (pictured below) and how it's grown and become a tool for teachers as well as a recreational resource for city residents.

Loren Demerath has been invited to speak to the local Bird Study Group headed by retired professor Mac Hardy at LSUS on how Coates Bluff has developed, and how ABS hopes it will serve as a template for developing other such trails in other parts of the city. (And Loren will be inviting other members to join him, if not in speaking [people can be shy or busy], in crafting the talking points.)

Steph Pedro, with the help of formative ABS member and Director of Sankofa, Leia Lewis, has put ABS on the Louisiana Association of Non-Profit Organizations (LANO) map of social service providers. As our mission is to provide a public forum for discussing ideas for improving the quality of life in our city, we belong on that map!
