Schoolhouse Springs Preserve supports a spring-fed swamp, an uncommon type of forest wetland. This site was identified by the Natural Heritage Program as a "top ten priority." To date, six globally rare aquatic insects have been discovered inhabiting the springs. This preserve is not open for public visitation.
The Nature Conservancy of Louisiana is working to protect the rare aquatic insects that live here, including the micro-caddis fly and stone fly. The Conservancy is also working with adjacent landowners to keep ground water from interrupting with the springs on the preserve.
