Friends & Donors


galva canal boardwalkTurtle Cove is seeking to expand its breadth of support  from individuals and businesses in our community, and within the region we serve.


Donations in support of Turtle Cove's education, outreach, restoration and research programs can be made online through the Southeastern Foundation. Any donation you make is greatly appreciated, and will help Turtle Cove staff to continue to provide the research support and education/outreach programs we have always provided by helping to fund necessary equipment, supplies and other items used at the station every day.



If preferred, checks can be made to "Southeastern Foundation" (indicate "Friends of Turtle Cove" in the memo) and send to:

  Turtle Cove Environmental Research Station
  Southeastern Louisiana University
  Box 10585
  Hammond, LA 70402


Our new boardwalk now has a Self-Guided Boardwalk Tour with 55 signs along the 2/3 mile boardwalk, showing pictures and describing various species of mammals, reptiles/amphibians, vegetation, birds and fish, along with a few signs discussing the cultural history of the area---each sign has a "sponsorship space" (plate) available for any individual or business that would like to sponsor that sign. The plate will note the person or business's name (and logo if applicable). Please contact the Turtle Cove Manager for more details and visit the self guided boardwalk tour to see the available signs to choose from.
