Wonderful news friends! On May 15, 2023 Land Trust for Louisiana formally signed our partnership with Southeastern Louisiana University and the Addison family — ensuring that Cherokee Beach on the Tangipahoa River will be protected, forever.
Cherokee Beach will be placed under a conservation easement, with the goal of using the site as a research forest for SLU students and others to study the native ecology. Since its former life as a camping and tubing playground, this place has been so special to Tangipahoa residents. We can’t wait to play a role in its next chapter!
