This stretch of land nestled between Lake Saint Catherine and Highway 90 was once owned by the railroad company, but will now be protected in perpetuity thanks to Land Trust for Louisiana.

Consisting of brackish tidal marsh, it serves as a habitat for several endangered species, including the diamond back terrapin turtle and the bald eagle.

This 139.7 acre location is part of a fishing community located in the Rigolets Pass. The property also provides habitat for water fowl and it is located ten miles east of the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge, which consists of 23,000 acres of tidal marsh that is managed for multiple uses,including hunting and fishing. 
Nine Mile Island provides a vital link between coastal Louisiana and the North Shore and provides a natural hurricane buffer for Highway 90.
