Last week nearly 15 New Orleans Public Radio listeners joined our Coastal Desk reporters for a tour of the Port of New Orleans.

On February 10 we boarded The Roy S. Kelley, a large boat owned by the Port, and toured the operations along the Mississippi River -- from New Orleans Cold Storage adjacent to the Fly park Uptown, all the way to the Industrial Canal inlet separating the Bywater neighborhood from the Lower 9th Ward. Paul Matthews, the Community Affairs Manager for the Port of New Orleans, lead the tour and answered listeners' questions.
