Blake Couvillion with Cajuns for Bayou Teche, is asking for volunteers, friends, and families to bring their motor boats to help clean debris from Bayou Teche. Cajuns for Bayou Teche is helping to clear the banks of the bayou for New Iberia’s first ever, Dragon Boat Festival! Close to 50 tons of trash and debris have been pulled out of Bayou Teche in the 5 years the organization has been volunteering their time on the Bayou. “Cajuns for Bayou Teche and it’s volunteers have been able to improve the banks of Bayou Teche over the past several years. We love to see new recreational activities such as Tour du Teche and now the Dragon Boat Festival coming to our bayou," says Couvillion.

Volunteers with motor boats are needed to make this effort possible. Kayaks and canoes are also encouraged. Drinks and garbage bags will be provided. Volunteers should bring gloves.
This new Dragon Boat Festival is sure to be an great time, and Cajuns for Bayou Teche wants to ensure that the waterway is fit for residents and guests to have an enjoyable experience. Please come out and help to support the clean up effort!
You can find out more information about both events at techeproject.com or acadianadragonboatfestival.com.
Cajuns for Bayou Teche is a program of the TECHE Project, a non-profit organization supporting programs about Bayou Teche.
