The success of the Louisiana Life March depends on the pro-life people of Louisiana gathering to make a difference. You are needed to be present to save lives!!
Thanks to the wonderful pro-life generosity of Hotard Coaches and Calco Travel, all groups that utilize a Hotard or Calco bus (same company) to travel to the Louisiana Life March South in Baton Rouge will receive a 25% discount on their total rate! Please contact Hotard or Calco ASAP to schedule your bus for your church or group. Whether online or on the phone, be sure to mention 'Louisiana Life March'.
Hotard and Calco have bus centers in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and Biloxi. However, they will work with people from across the state either by picking up or coordinating through affiliates. Please contact them right away
Buses should park in Lot F on Nicholson Drive in front of the Bernie Moore track and field stadium or across Nicholson Drive in the large lot. Private vehicles can park throughout the campus, as all lots are open on the weekends.
If you do not know your way around the LSU campus:
Take the Dalrymple Drive exit off Interstate 10 (East or West). The Greek Theatre will be about 4 miles on the right hand side in the heart of campus after you cross Highland Road.
The map indicates a turn off Dalrymple, but that is not necessary. LARTL will have volunteers directing attendees to parking areas near the theatre.
