Money Hill Hosts Recyling Event Leading Up to Earth Day

ABITA SPRINGS, La. — Money Hill, a 5,600-acre luxury gated residential community on the Northshore, is offering free mimosas and lemonade to all residents who bring their recycling to a designated area from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 20. The event is part of the community’s plan to celebrate Earth Day, which falls on April 22 this year.

“Money Hill has been a steward of environmental conservation for over 50 years,” said a spokesperson for the community, which features a country club and golf course surrounded by nature preserves. “Situated as a designated Louisiana nature preservation site and housing the St. Tammany Parish office of the Louisiana Nature Conservancy, Money Hill takes its responsibility as a guardian of the Northshore’s natural legacy seriously.”

Money Hill’s conservation goals include preserving longleaf pine forests and fostering wildlife habitats. In March, contractors executed a controlled burn on the property.

“Controlled burns not only enhance ecosystem health but also facilitate nutrient release into the soil and promote flowering and fruiting in native grasses and wildflowers, all while preventing the hazardous buildup of forest litter,” said the spokesperson.

Money Hill has been owned by the Goodyear family since 1905. Initially, it was used to grow trees to support the timber, pulp, paper and tung oil industries. In the latter half of the 20th century, the site was transformed into a campground and hunting club before evolving into the community it is today. Now led by Led by President Mimi Goodyear Dossett, Money Hill is located an hour north of New Orleans in the hills of St. Tammany Parish.
