Alligators, herons, history, and more---paddle the preserve's waterways on a ranger-guided canoe trek and discover the wetlands from the water. Trek is free but space is limited so reservations are required; call 504-689-3690 ext. 10 for reservations and canoe rental information.
Please note: Treks are not recommended for first-time canoiests or others who may have difficulty paddling through floating mats of aquatic vegetation.
The Baratara Preserve is located at 6588 Barataria Blvd. in Marrero (near Crown Point).
