Petit Bois Wetland Mitigation Bank (Coastal)

  • Louisiana
  • Cameron Parish
  • Wetland: 876.5 AC
  • Calcasieu Basin

The goal of the Bank was to re-establish and rehabilitate sustainable bottomland hardwood and bald cypress forested wetland ecosystems for compensatory mitigation purposes. The re-establishment and rehabilitation of bottomland hardwood and bald cypress wetland ecosystems was accomplished by converting existing agricultural and pasture and Chinese tallow (Triadica sebifera) forests to a natural species composition indicative of a bottomland hardwood and bald cypress wetland forest and subsequently increasing wetland functions, values, and services.
