Until the 1960s, it was a full of cypress trees, part of the central wetlands system that ran from the Lower 9th Ward all the way to Lake Borgne. But destructive forces — from levee and canal construction to invasive species — turned this freshwater swamp into a saltwater marsh, killing all the cypress trees in the process. You see their dead trunks like scarecrows in the water, and don’t see much else.</p> Mon, 02 Jun 2014 14:00:00 +0000 Laine Kaplan-Levenson 61797 at http://wwno.org What To Do With Bayou Bienvenue?: Amanda Moore http://wwno.org/post/what-do-bayou-bienvenue-amanda-moore <p></p><p></p> Mon, 02 Jun 2014 12:00:00 +0000 Laine Kaplan-Levenson 61767 at http://wwno.org Lower 9th Ward Village Scrambles For Funding http://wwno.org/post/lower-9th-ward-village-scrambles-funding <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The Lower 9th Ward Village community center has fallen on tough financial times.
