On Friday, December 6, 2013, LTHP President, Michael Echols presented a check to Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish Government President, on the grounds of Camp Salmen Nature Park located near Slidell. These funds will be utilized in the restoration of the historic Salmen Lodge on the banks of Bayou Liberty. The Salmen Lodge was selected to receive shared proceeds of the 2013 Fall Ramble, which is one of several fundraisers held annually throughout the state by the LTHP. The Bayou Liberty Association and Friends of Camp Salmen were in cooperation with this endeavor.
|What are Rambles?
Rambles feature exclusive tours and social events in historic properties not usually open to the public. Tours of historic homes and buildings are self-guided, and guests provide their own transportation. Maps and programs are provided at packet pick-up. Catered lunch is offered as part of registration packages; however, there are tour-only (no meals) options as well.
