Annual Beach Sweep
ELMER”S ISLAND - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries in conjunction with Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program is calling for volunteers for their annual Elmer’s Island Beach Sweep on Saturday, June 2.
Enjoy a morning on the beach and in the dunes while cleaning up Elmer’s Island from 8 a.m. to noon.
Anyone can participate. Lunch and all necessary supplies will be provided.
Trash is often dumped directly into the Gulf of Mexico by careless recreational and commercial boaters, and is also left on site by beach-goers. This is the third annual event to rid the beach of this unsightly and harmful debris.
The original beach sweep this year was planned for May 17, but had to be cancelled due to heavy rains.
Pre-registration is encouraged, but not required. To register, contact Joe Dantin at (985)449-4715.
