The threat of inclement weather along Louisiana’s Central Coast forced postponement of the annual Elmer’s Island beach sweep that was scheduled for Saturday, the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries announced late Friday.

The all-volunteer effort organized by the LDWF and the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program will be rescheduled.

LDWF spokeswoman Ashley Wethey said the state agency will announce the new Beach Sweep date as soon as a date becomes available.
