Lockport Elevated Wetlands Boardwalk
Walk among the plants and fauna into the swamp at the Lockport Elevated Boardwalk. The 440-foot boardwalk meanders through the swamp and offers a beautiful scenic setting surrounded by a variety of native plant and wildlife species. In the Spring witness the colorful bloom of the Louisiana Iris, or in the Fall capture the return of the bald eagle.
Steeped in history, learn more about the cultural influence and journey of the Acadians and how they made the banks of Bayou Lafourche their home. Discover the cultural gumbo that defines Lafourche Parish and enjoy a fascinating array of exhibits, photographs, and artifacts that date back over 100 years ago. Afterwards, take a walk along the boardwalk where you may spot an alligator in the bayou.
The Lafourche Historic Live Oak Tour encapsulates the stories of the people, places, and events that the old oaks have witnessed. Our parish is fortunate to have many of its historic oak trees still alive and growing. More than 400 oaks in Lafourche Parish have been registered with the Live Oak Society as notable oaks.
