Louisiana Conservationist Summer Issue Now Available

The next issue of Louisiana’s oldest outdoor magazine, Louisiana Conservationist, is now ready for your review.  This summer issue is full of great stories, expanding on Louisiana’s coastal restoration, endangered species research, new summer camps for children and an offshore excursion just for women.

The summer time is the best time for children to get involved with outdoor activities. The department hosted its second annual outdoors children’s camp at the Waddill Outdoor Education Center in Baton Rouge.

Our coastal restoration series goes further in depth in this edition as we explore the Mississippi River delta and its forever changing landscape as we focus on Pass-a-Loutre in this issue.  In addition, Dave Moreland, a regular LCM contributor, gives us a lesson in planting for all wildlife in his “Outdoor Roots” column.

We also look at a new program called “Women in the Wild” where a group of 30 women was given the opportunity to try their hands at fishing at Grand Isle, LA.  And, we travel to the northern part of the state to look for the elusive Louisiana pine snake, the rarest snake in North America.

These stories and more await you in the summer edition of the Louisiana Conservationist at www.louisianaconservationist.org.  ENJOY!
