Our Newly formed Friends Group has already started with exciting projects for our Park!
Over 225 trees donated by the State of Louisiana to the Coalition to Restore Coastal Lousiana were planted in Palmetto Island State Park on March 19. Sherrill Sagrera, founding member of Friends of Palmetto Island State Park, happens to also be a member of the Coalition, and recognized the opportunity to reforest areas of the Parks property where trees were lost or died because of Hurricanes Rita and Ike. Sherrill worked in cooperation with LSU AgCenter Vermilion Extention Office’s Ashlee Marceaux, who was responsible for coordinating 18 volunteers from Fugro Geoservices to get the Cypress, Pecan and Oak trees planted. Thank you to….the State, the Coalition, Sherrill, Ashlee and all the Volunteers from Fugro….Good Job!!
