LOS committed $5,000 to the Cameron Parish Police Jury to finance a birding observation tower at the Cameron jetty. The site selected is just east or slightly southeast of the RV parking lot at East Jetty Beach. The tower is a 15 feet x 15 feet platform on 8-12 foot pilings with a ramp leading from the surface to the platform. This allows folks to observe birds both to the west up to the jetty and pass as well as the large flock of birds usually found to the east. It also provides a good view of the marsh behind and to the east of the beach. This tower is a great asset to all birders visiting the area. LOS would like to thank those members and the Louisiana birding community who helped make this project a success.
