Cypress Island Visitor Center

Volunteer Opportunities

The Cypress Island Visitor Center opened in the Spring of 2010.  The Conservancy now has a full time presence at the Cypress Island preserve at Lake Martin near Breaux Bridge in St. Martin Parish.  With nearly 10,000 acres previously donated by Chevron, Cypress Island preserve is the Conservancy’s largest preserve in Louisiana.  With a waterbird rookery that is among the largest in North America, over 200,000 visitors a year make their way to Lake Martin each spring.  To provide information and a Conservancy welcome, the Visitor Center is staffed by volunteers as well as Conservancy staff.  In addition to the Visitor Center, there are walking trails and a boardwalk to enjoy.  We hope you will take the time to visit Cypress Island.
