This project will restore three critical barrier islands/headland within the Terrebonne Basin barrier shoreline system: West Belle Headland, Timbalier Island, and Trinity Island. The sustainable restoration of beach, dune, and marsh habitat in a highly eroded area of the Louisiana coast will bolster the comprehensive efforts to protect this fragile landscape. The West Belle Headland portion of the project will implement designs developed under a prior GEBF-funded project. Additionally, this proposal includes funding to enhance plans for the long term sustainability of the entire length of Louisiana barrier islands.
