Morning Wordless Walk at Jean Lafitte

Come to the swamp on Sunday morning to rejuvenate your soul in nature. A lovely silent walk on some of the less well-known trails at Barataria. We'll meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Visitor Center Parking Lot. Bring water and insect repellent! We'll walk the beautiful Visitor Center/Palmetto trail, enjoying the incredible cypress swamp and palmetto stands.  There's an option to continue on the Bayou Coquille trail if you like. Either way, we'll enjoy soaking in the beauty with all of our senses.

Feel free to bring friends/loved ones of either gender to this event!

$5.00 donation appreciated but not required.

    Yet another magical morning in the swamp! An owl hunting, numerous snakes, frogs and lizards, incredible scents from the white flowers all through the swamp, and the peaceful breeze. Perfect weather, no bugs! Lovely!

    The Morning Wordless Walk was just what I needed. It calmed and rejuvenated me, following a hectic few days. It was absolutely beautiful. The nature seemed to kind of wrap me up and soothe me.

    I have someone coming over to the house to fix something, so I might be getting there and leaving earlier, but a step into nature is much needed.

      Oh, Dixie! I am just seeing this! Thanks for pointing this out - I'm terrible about checking the website first. Sounds like we should meet at the Visitor's Center Parking lot instead. Let's plan to do that! Thanks for the update, Dixie!

      I just changed the meeting location. Hopefully there will still be animals to see post-bioblitz!
