Beach Planting in Cameron Parish Saturday, September 26, 2015
The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) and CITGO are excited to announce our dune restoration event on the Cameron coast on Saturday, September 26th. The volunteer event commemorates the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Rita as part of the CITGO Caring for our Coast Program, during National Estuaries Week. We will be planting a 5 mile stretch of Cameron shoreline with 60,000 plugs of dune grass. The goal of this project is to increase soil retention along the beach, promote dune growth, provide critical habitat for nesting birds, and enhance protection to highway 82 and the coastal communities of Cameron parish.
