Friends of Camp Salmen Nature Park, Inc. was founded on the idea of making a better nature park for all visitors to enjoy. Peruse our Projects Menu.
Also, the park has a landmark that no other state park has. It is Salmen Lodge which was publicly recognized in the early 1830's. It is rumored it was possibly built in the late 1700s as a trading post. As Friends of Camp Salmen, we are actively assisting St. Tammany Parish to restore the building to its original construction wherever possible. It is a National Historic Landmark devolving into ruins and we want to preserve it. It is our heritage that presently falling apart. It is still restorable and with the help of our parish, volunteers, and us, we are able to save it.
Our team is made up entirely of volunteers. We span all walks of life with different skills to offer. We need more skills for we will be planning several projects in 2017 and we need volunteers to make it happen.
