Wetland Watchers Park, a 28-acre facility located to the east of the Bonnet Carre Spillway’s Lower Guide Levee on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain will be dedicated on Oct. 2.

Phase one of the park includes a grand pavilion and 900-foot-long nature trail, outdoor classroom, picnic pavilions, an armored shoreline and blacktop roadways.


The outdoor classroom, funded by Dow Chemical, stands in the center of a palmetto forest, within which some plants are more than 400 years old. No palmettos were destroyed in the process of building the classroom. Here students and patrons will be able to interface with and learn about nature at the same time.
