St. Tammany Parish.
Approximately 414 acres
This site was selected by The Nature Conservancy in order to preserve the last remaining pine savanna habitats in the Florida Parishes. These savannas are known for their diversity, including several carnivorous plants, numerous rare plant species and a spectacular variety of orchids.
The Nature Conservancy of Louisiana is restoring the savanna by removing certain flora with an aggressive prescribed burning program and planting longleaf pine. This site is being cooperatively managed with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, which owns the adjacent 796-acre Lake Ramsey Wildlife Management Area.
Open during daylight hours. A trail system allows visitors to view this unique habitat. A trailhead parking lot is located north of Covington on Horse Branch Road. The preserve is suitable for children that are accompanied by an adult. There are no restroom facilities available on site.
