  • Ten high school and junior high school teams from across Louisiana participated in the Louisiana Envirothon at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s Cade Farm. The teams competed for a chance to go to the North American Envirothon competition at the University of Carolina, Asheville in August. The Envirothon is a multidisciplinary and environmental problem-solving competition in the following categories: soils, forestry, current issue, wildlife and aquatics. First Place in the competition went to Audubon Zoo Team A; Comeaux High won second place and third place went to Beau Chene FFA.
  • Dr. John isn't the only one dishing it out to Shell, Jazz Fest's No. 1 sponsor. A group of Louisiana environmentalists launched www.shelljazzfest.com, a mock mirror site to www.nojazzfest.com, to blast the oil giant's various human rights and environmental crimes accusations.
  • Tulane University's environmental law program ranked No. 11 (of 1,200) on the U.S. News and World Report's latest list of the best graduate programs.
  • The Green Project is offering a DIY screenprinting workshop Saturday, May 2 from 10 a.m. to noon. Avery Lawrence will show you how to make your own designs on shirts, bags, etc. An invaluable skill. Highly recommended.
  • And now L'Oreal, Brought to You by Manure. A Belgian plant will convert its operations to capture waste biomass (re: methane gas from cows) sometime this summer.
  • See below for a sweet lil' invention that'll make 'em say "Duh":
