Floating Islands

Gary Perilloux of The Advocate had a story today spotlighting a Baton Rouge company that is doing something exciting for the wetlands. Floating Island International is a company that was actually born in Montana but founder and inventor Bruce Kania had a 'Eureka' moment on his ranch and realized this invention could help the coast and build habitats. He now builds floating islands of peat and seeds which are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also grow the wetlands. Read more about this fascinating company here on their website and the Perilloux's story can be found here on the Advocate's website. Thanks Judy for the heads up on such a great story!
