"Like every drop of water, piece of trash, and basketball that enters Bayou Pierre, I am undertaking a water-borne journey towards the Gulf of Mexico," says Jon Soul.

The one-man journey is called Bayou to Bay -- exploring Louisiana's watersheds.

Chat with the impassioned and skillful woods and bayou man on Thurs, Mar 22, 5 to 8 pm at Marilynn's Place at 4041 Fern Ave. At 6:30 pm Soul will talk specifically about Louisiana's watersheds and the nature of his journey.

Soul, a teacher at Montessori School for Shreveport, is the originator of the Coates Bluff Nature Trail. He and MSS recently won a statewide conservation award for use and development of the Coates Bluff Nature Trail.
