The Bayou Vermilion Preservation Association (BVPA), a 501 (c)3 tax exempt organization, is committed to creating awareness of our natural environment by providing education and outreach to the general community about ways to conserve, protect and enjoy the Bayou Vermilion Watershed.
We have joined forces with Lafayette Utilities System & Lafayette Consolidated Government to facilitate a painted rain barrel contest. Barrels purchased by our organization are promoted for community voting and then placed on ebay for an auction. Proceeds from the auction will be divided between BVPA and participating schools and used for green projects.
Details for the 2018-2019 Painted Barrel Contest and Auction will be released soon.
