"The Everglades of Louisiana" Sabine National Wildlife Refuge by mrclay2000

Herons, Gators and Geese, O My!

This large preserve on the western side of Lake Charles in Louisiana hosts almost 200 square miles of aquatic marvels. Birds of varying species and alligators aplenty routinely ply the waters and tall grasses of the refuge, and few visitors -- however brief their visit -- will leave without witnessing the various forms for themselves.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Several trails and activities put visitors close to the action
  • Cons:Arduous rowing is the only way to explore the entire refuge
  • In a nutshell:Close encounters with dozens of bird and reptilian species
  • Last visit to Sabine National Wildlife Refuge: Oct 2004
