We're hoping to rescue a few thousand Louisiana irises from a site west of New Orleans and plant them at our new iris holding area in the lower Ninth Ward.

The Louisiana Iris Conservation Initiative, Inc. is a Louisiana non-profit corporation that has been formed for the purpose of organizing Louisiana iris rescue and planting projects involving wild, native irises threatened with destruction.
