BTNEP: The Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program (BTNEP) is one of 28 National Estuary Programs throughout the United States and its territories. The National Estuary Program was established by Congress through section 320 of the Clean Water Act or 1987. The Barataria-Terrebonne estuarine complex became a National Estuary in 1990.

The BTNEP Management Conference: Upon inclusion in the National Estuary Program, a diverse group of stakeholders was assembled including government, business, scientists, conservation organizations, agricultural interest, and individuals.  This group is known as the Management Conference and it ensures a place for the voice of all that live, work, and play in the Barataria-Terrebonne estuarine complex.  For more information about the Management Conference: Click Here
