Donated by Mr. Willis Martin of the Roy O. Martin Co., Lake Cocodrie Preserve is primarily forested wetlands. A small mixed pine-hardwood forest harbors the crested coral-root orchid, a state-rare plant. This preserve is not open for public visitation.
Evangeline and Rapides Parishes
The Conservancy selected this site because of its forested wetlands and support of the state-rare plant, the crested coral-root orchid.
The Conservancy has conserved the hardwood slope forest and flooded cypress swamp.
