Bayous and Canals of the Manchac Swamp

Visitors enjoy a leisurely boat ride during fall bird migration, which will stop at the historic site of the Turtle Cove Environmental Research Station with its raised boardwalk with 56 educational stations identifying our common native plants and creatures extending several thousands of feet into the marsh. The trip continues into “Stinking Bayou” for some different habitat and more excellent birding where alligators are common. Bring your binoculars and cameras for a spectacular showcase of birds in flight. Stay to view sunset on the upper deck of the Galva classrooms with a glass of wine and cheese refreshments. $45 members/$50 non-members. Limited space is available so register early!
