Grand Isle was hit hard by Katrina and Rita. We are one of the first stops for northern migrating birds. Most of the Red Mulberry, a favorite of the trip-starved birds on the island was destroyed.We are looking for any help possible in getting Red Mulberry starts re-planted on the island. If anyone can help, please let me know.

Wayne...the Oklahoma Department of Forestry has red mulberry seedlings available this year. Here is a link to the site:

Are there still stumps from some of the trees, or were they all uprooted? Mulberries regrow rapidly after storm damage.
