Caminada Beach Restoration Project Completed

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) have announced the completion of the Caminada Beach and Dune Restoration Project and the reopening of Elmer’s Island Refuge.

Elmer’s Island has never looked better,” said LDWF Secretary, Charlie Melancon. “This is a great example of a project that is able to enhance habitat for wildlife and provide opportunities for recreational users while offering additional coastal protection to the area.

CPRA began the restoration project on the western end of the Caminada headlands in 2012 and restored approximately 300 acres and 6 miles of beach and dune habitat.

The eastern half of the project, which includes Elmer’s Island, began in 2013, and restored approximately 500 acres and 7 miles of beach and dune.

In total, the two projects restored 13 miles of Louisiana’s barrier shoreline and represent one of the largest restoration projects ever constructed by the CPRA with a combined project investment of over $200 million.
