Let's go outside and have some fun---and do something good for ourselves too! Enjoy the beauty of the bayou, take a ranger-guided walk, do some yoga, join the line dancing or zumba crew, play a game, and enjoy a performance by New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park and Preserve's musical rangers. All this and a health fair too---follow the link to Better Health BaYOU! at the Barataria Preserve for all the details.

The Barataria Preserve is located at 6588 Barataria Blvd. in Marrero (near Crown Point).
