December 10th -15th 2011 - 10am to 3pm
Elmer's Island is a 230-acre tract of barrier beachfront located on the southwestern tip of Jefferson Parish,
managed by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries as a refuge for migrating and nesting birds,
wildlife, and planned habitat restoration. The island is well known for the excellent fishing opportunities it has
provided over the years for many popular species such as speckled and white trout, flounder, redfish, kingfish,
black drum, croaker, spanish mackerel and many other species that frequent the State's coastal beaches and
passes as well as opportunities to observe wading, shore and seabirds as well as coastal marine life.
Sand fences to facilitate dune building and the planting of native vegetation to enhance shoreline protection,
provide habitat for migratory and native birds, and for our native fish and wildlife.
What to Bring and Expect:
Dress for the weather and be prepared to be in direct sun and to get wet and muddy. Elmer’s Island is
remote. There are no bathrooms. Pack a lunch or order food to pick up from a local restaurant. Bring
