BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Environmental leaders from across the state are teaming up with the community to save our environment. Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant, General Russel Honoré, wants to tackle issues including the disasters in Bayou Corne and saving Louisiana's aquifers, but he says your support is necessary for that to happen.
"We're here to defend mother nature, and we are going to take a message to this state capitol that we will not allow them to destroy the water in Louisiana, nor our way of life, nor our seafood, nor our land. We've got to protect our wetlands equally," said Gen. Honoré.
Honoré says the next step is a rally at the capitol to get lawmakers to pass the necessary legislation.
