February 2011

Due to the unique location and geography of Louisiana’s southernmost parts, the Louisiana coastline is the perfect place to bird watch. In fact, more than 400 species visit our state each year, and by some estimates, this is over half of the species that can be found in the entirety of the United States! So this week, we will focus on one of these many types of birds to learn more about our feathered friends: The common loon.

For a town with “New” in its name, New Iberia is very dedicated to maintaining its past. This is a town with strong ties to its history as illustrated in a beautifully restored main street and downtown area.

Enjoy the country style cooking and ambiance of Cajun cafes.

Looking for something inexpensive and fun for the whole family this weekend? Check out the Eagle Expo to learn more about this beautiful bird and even get a chance to trips to bald eagle habitats in western Terrebonne and eastern St. Mary parishes.
