As promised! Lake D’Arbonne State Park is hosting a 1st Day Hike and Louisiana Master Naturalists – Northeast is invited. In fact, we’re kind of co-hosts, as yours truly will be a volunteer guide for the hike.
As the flyer below indicates, we will meet at the Visitor’s Center in the Park at 10 a.m. and hike for about 2 miles. Park staff member Penny Wainwright tells me the trail is a bit hilly but not difficult, and although it might be a bit muddy, we should not encounter standing water.
Please be sure to bring your own water and snacks if you need them. Penny also said we are welcome to gather in the Visitor Center to “debrief” and snack or eat lunch at the end of the hike.
I will have some of our LMN-NE brochures and will take this opportunity to do a little recruiting for us. That will be all the more effective if some of YOU are along to share the good times we’ve been having.
Now here’s a little treat: My best photo from the Christmas Bird Count last Saturday, taken in the D’Arbonne NWR.
