Over 300 area sportsmen, members and supporters of the Natchitoches chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association filled the Natchitoches Events Center Wednesday night, June 8, for the CCA’s third annual Chapter Banquet. The 3-year-old Natchitoches chapter is one of the youngest of the 29 chapters in Louisiana. The CCA, founded in 1981, has chapters in 18 states and is concerned with promoting conservation of fishing and marine resources. The banquet also featured a live and silent auction of a wide selection of fishing and sporting supplies.
