The winter edition of the Louisiana Conservationist is now available online.
This issue covers the December arrival of our second cohort of Whooping Cranes as part of the department's reintroduction efforts along with an update on the first cohort.
Dave Moreland's recurring feature "Outdoor Roots" touches on this year's mast boom of acorns in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley Plain, and how they can help your wildlife.
If variety is what you seek, then this edition will not disappoint as we explore a new type of rodeo in Golden Meadows, a nutria rodeo. The first of its kind and uniquely run by teenagers attempting to educate the youth of Louisiana on issues impacting our fragile coast.
We stay on the coast with an article discussing how Limited Access Areas have improved recent duck hunt success rates on our coastal WMA's.
All these and more are packed into our winter edition, along with videos, maps and photos to enhance stories and articles. So pull up a chair and make some time to dive into the winter 2012 edition of the Louisiana Conservationist!
