Volunteers Needed- Elmer's Island Habitat Restoration (NOVEMBER 12TH; 10 am-3pm)
Elmer's Island is a 230-acre tract of barrier beachfront located on the southwestern tip of Jefferson Parish, managed by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries as a refuge for migrating and nesting birds, wildlife, and planned habitat restoration. Habitat Restoration: sand fences to facilitate dune building and the planting of native vegetation to enhance shoreline protection, provide habitat for migratory and native birds, and for our native fish and wildlife. Dress for the weather and be prepared to be in direct sun and to get wet and muddy. Elmer’s Island is remote. There are no bathrooms. Pack a lunch or order food to pick up. Bring sunscreen, a water bottle and a smile. If you prefer to wear gloves please bring a pair. An introduction to coastal land loss and the role of grasses in restoration as well as all necessary equipment and training are provided.  Registration is required
