From Toni DeBossier:
It is with great sadness that I pass on to the group that Greg Guirard passed from us yesterday [June 2, 2017] at 12:44pm after a short battle with meningitis. Greg lived a full and wonderful 80 years and in some way touched many of us through his love of nature and the Basin. He will be missed.
[ed. note: Greg was a longtime Friend, supporter, and ambassador for the Atchafalaya Basin. If you haven’t read his books on the Basin, you should.
You can also see many of his images in the Atchafalaya Welcome Center on I-10 at Butte LaRose.]
