"Save our Cypress Trees"
The Ouachita River Foundation along with the Sierra Club and a handful of other groups have joined together to raise awareness to stop the logging of cypress forests to be used for cypress mulch.

The coalition's new website was designed and maintained by Jeffrey Dubinsky, webmaster extraordinaire for the Baton Rouge Group.
