Field Trips at the Barataria Preserve
At the Barataria Preserve in Marrero near Crown Point, students can enjoy field trips on the trails, to the visitor center, to the preserve's Environmental Education Center, or all three!
Your group can visit the preserve on their own or you can request a ranger-led program. Please call the preserve at 504-689-3690 ext. 25 whether or not you plan to request a ranger program; this will allow us to alert you to possible other large groups visiting the preserve on the same day you are planning to come.
