Community events for Earth Day- Free Nature Hikes Saturday, April 23

Friends of Black Bayou and Louisiana Master Naturalists Northeast will hold two free Earth Day herp walks at Black Bayou Lake National Wildlife Refuge Saturday, April 23.

The Public is invited to join the free nature walks.

There's one herp hike setting off at 10 a.m. from the Visitors Center. It's likely to be nice and warm, so the herps should be out and about. The hikes will be on the boardwalk and paths and will be over by mid-day.

There will also be a short class on our local frogs at 6:45 p.m. at the Education Center. This will be followed by a walk around the boardwalk at 7.15 p.m. Bring a flashlight or head-torch. It will be over by 9 p.m.  This is a rare opportunity to experience the refuge at night.

Black Bayou Lake National Wildlife Refuge is one of the best places in NELA to see American Alligators, turtles, lizards, snakes, and frogs.

Please see the blog for more information or contact Charles Paxton at 318-331-1531.
