F5_2 Great Delta Tour
Organizers: Peter Yaukey (Great Delta Tour) & Barbara Johnson (Great Delta Tour)
Great Delta Tours is a newly formed tour company in New Orleans, running year round, whose vision is to introduce visitors to the environmental wonders and challenges of southeast Louisiana. Its signature tour was written by local geography professor Peter Yaukey, who will also lead the tour for the AAG. This four hour adventure will proceed from downtown to Lake Pontchartrain, the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge, and the fishing community of Shell Beach (St. Bernard Parish). Foci include colonial history, the delta, coastal land loss, hurricanes, and wildlife. Dr. Yaukey is an expert birder.
