Layla Guin Heard
Aaron Hutchison was born and raised here in Terrebonne parish. I love to fish and spend time on water. We need to keep our amazing community beautiful for our future generations to come to enjoy what south Louisiana has to offer.
Wendy Wilson Billiot is a resident of Bayou Dularge, where she owns and operates Wetland Tours, Camp Dularge, and Wetlands Media. She's lived in Terrebonne Parish since 1979 and has reared five children here. Her interest in litter abatement started after seeing all the marine debris left behind by the flood surge of Hurricane Rita in 2005. After FEMA and the Coast Guard finished their cleanup of the larger items, she and another local fisherman co-founded the Dularge Trash Bash in 2007 in response to the need for a bayou cleanup. It was her vision to see the concept of the Dularge Trash Bash spread to all of the bayou communities. Keep Terrebonne Beautiful later became involved in these bayou cleanups, resulting in her being asked to serve on the board in 2010. In 2013, she became the Ex. Director of KTB and is working to see the vision spread of cleanups along every bayou in the parish.
