Elizabeth Brooks, Executive Director of Moncus Park

Elizabeth (“EB”) Brooks is well known in Lafayette for her service as Executive Director of Moncus Park, affectionately referred to by locals as “The Horse Farm.” In 2005, while a student at UL – Lafayette, EB learned that the 100-acre UL Horse farm property was threatened by commercial development.  She and her friends, especially fellow activist Danica Adams, launched a successful community wide campaign to save the property as green space for future generations to enjoy. EB discusses her love of Lafayette, her hopes for the future, and the lasting gift the “Horse Farm” offers to Lafayette and Acadiana.
