Discover How to Do Your Part in Saving the Coast

Mignon Faget believes saving our coast belongs to everyone. Join forces with Mignon and the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) to save our coast! The CRCL aims to protect and advocate for coastal Louisiana through educational awareness, environmental policy, and restoration efforts. With the support of our collectors, Mignon Faget is proud to have raised over $100,000 to restore the Gulf Coast.

You can do your part by volunteering for the CRCL or by purchasing one of Mignon Faget’s Gifts that Give, which donate 10% of the purchase of the item to the CRCL.

If you happen to be looking for a wetlands experience, visit Barataria Preserve. The Preserve is one of six sites belonging to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. 23,000 acres of Louisiana scenery stretch across the landscape, including trails, bayous, and waterways. Make sure to bring your binoculars in hopes of spotting one of the 200 species of birds that call the Preserve home. And if you are lucky – you may spot an alligator or two!

The Preserve is the perfect escape from the city, located just outside Marrero, offering beautiful hikes, wildlife sightings, and even canoeing and kayaking. Pack a picnic, put on your hiking shoes, and head out to the Barataria Preserve for a truly unique Louisiana experience. We were lucky enough to visit the Preserve while shooting our new catalog.
