Abita Creek Flatwoods Preserve


Unnamed Road
Abita Springs LA 70420

At this preserve, you can walk along an informative boardwalk that runs through portions of the preserve and view pine-dominated wetland communities, including longleaf pine savanna, longleaf flatwoods, bayhead swamp, and slash pine-pond cypress woodland. You can also see a wide variety of fascinating plants, including carnivorous pitcher plants. The Nature Conservatory maintains an interpretive trail/boardwalk that provides visitors with a good opportunity to experience a range of habitats native to the preserve. There is a convenient parking area just off of LA 435 that provides easy access to the trailhead.
