Join Us For a Spooky Halloween Walk in Louisiana’s Savanna

Early morning mists… creepy crawlies… shimmering webs and flesh-eating plants… a Longleaf pine savanna is the perfect place to start off your Halloween weekend!

Join us for a walking tour of the Abita Creek Flatwoods Preserve, led by our Land Protection Specialist, Nelwyn McInnis. We hope you come in costume!

Oct. 30
9-11:30 AM

Registration required

The field trip fee of $30 includes a picnic lunch, and goes towards funding our efforts across the state to protect and preserve Louisiana’s natural habitats.

We will be leading an exploration of the Abita Creek Flatwoods Preserve in St. Tammany Parish. Biologist Nelwyn McInnis will show you a rapidly disappearing wild landscape, highlighting the natural history and special features of this rare habitat.

This will be a 2 hour, easy to moderate stroll through the native flora of the Longleaf pine habitat, so wear long pants and shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. Don’t forget your hat, water bottle, camera and binoculars.

Meeting location: Pitcher Plant Trail at the Abita Creek Flatwoods Preserve – 4.5 miles east of Abita Springs along LA Hwy 435, across the street from Green Street.

Our conservation easement on the Abita Creek Flatwoods Preserve is part of a joint effort with The Nature Conservancy to protect 950 acres of Longleaf pine habitat.
