For the Love of Land

Volunteers needed Valentine’s Day Weekend to help us show love to Cherokee Beach! Register here.

A trail leading through the former camp sites at Cherokee Beach.

Thousands of families in Tangipahoa Parish and beyond remember Cherokee Beach as a popular camping and tubing site on the Tangipahoa River. The Land Trust is now working with the current owners and local universities to conserve this wonderful property and create opportunities for ecological research.

Unfortunately, the site was heavily damaged during Hurricane Ida and we could use volunteers to help clean up and clear trails. Show this special Louisiana place your love by spending quality time picking up branches and debris. We would also LOVE to connect with you, our fellow conservation lovers! And to show our appreciation… the first 50 volunteers to come out will receive a free t-shirt!

Date: Saturday, Feb. 12
Time: 9am – 12pm
Location: The clean-up site is about 20 minutes north of Hammond, off Highway 442. A map to the meeting location will be provided to all participants.  
All volunteers must register here to attend.

Trails lead through the forest to the banks of the Tangipahoa River.

We can’t wait to see you at For the Love of Land!
