Ricki Ella Bratcher is creating an “alternative wetland” installation full of invasive and exotic plants made from found objects, paper, and trash. She will run a workshop at Ripple Effect’s Bayou Day, where students can learn what invasive species are while constructing a few plants to add to the repurposed waste ecosystem.
Bayou Day is an annual celebration of water in the city, with games, art, wildlife exploration, and other hands-on activities. Teachers, students, and families from schools around New Orleans gather on the banks of Bayou St. John (Orleans and N. Jeff. Davis) to celebrate the work of Ripple Effect students, and to connect learning in the classroom with the water, infrastructure, and the ecology of the city and the delta. Bayou Day is May 13, 10am to 2pm on Bayou St John at the intersections of Orleans and N. Jefferson. Visit rippleeffectnola.com to learn more.
