Cameron Gets Huge Grant To Preserve Their Coastline
Cameron Parish is one of six areas in Louisiana that are receiving money to help preserve our coastline and natural habits.
Cameron officials say that the $300,000 grant will be used to fund the third phase of shoreline protection and oyster reef restoration at Calcasieu Lake and Sabine National Wildlife Refuge. The work will be carried out by a non-profit company named The Nature Conservancy.
The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana is also sending over $1 million to six total projects across the state this year:
