The Land Trust Signs Cherokee Beach MOU with Southeastern

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!
