GREEN SCHOOLS. GREEN TOOLS. Building a Better Louisiana.
USGBC Louisiana is working every day to make Louisiana a healthier, more prosperous place to live, work and learn by greening the built environment. Through education, legislative advocacy, research, and service, our members and a network of dedicated volunteers are making a difference. We are committed to making green building a priority in Louisiana.
Membership is open to anyone with a passion for green building, sustainable communities, and a brighter future for our state. Join us today.
Our friends at Parasite Skate Park in New Orleans have done it! New skate forms are installed, the storm water management components are finished, and we are all celebrating this one-of-a-kind park under the I-610 bridge. The skaters are ready to take the next step. They want to complete the park and have initiated a KICKSTARTER campaign. Every dollar counts! Read more about Parisite and consider giving today.
