Lake Martin Louisiana

About This Group

Fans of Lake Martin Bird Sanctuary. In case you didn't know,
Location
The Cypress Island Preserve is situated between Breaux Bridge and Lafayette, Louisiana, and part of the Atchafalaya Basin Swamp.

Size
Approximately 9,500 acres of important cypress-tupelo swamp and bottomland hardwood forest habitat is protected.

Conditions
Beginning in late January, thousands of Great Egrets, followed by Little Blue Herons, Cattle Egrets, Snowy Egrets and Roseate Spoonbills make their nests and rear their young in the rookery. Great Blue Herons and Neotropic Cormorants may be seen in the distant tree tops. Expect a spectacular rookery view from March through June. The 2.5-mile walking levee trail is open from the fall to the spring and is suitable for children. Because this remarkable natural area is easily accessible and affords visitors with incredible wildlife viewing opportunities, Cypress Island Preserve receives thousands of visitors a year from all over the world.
