Honey Island Swamp Tours
Scientist Paul Wagner has an intimate knowledge of Louisiana’s wetlands – and you can catch an informed glimpse on one of Dr. Wagner’s Honey Island Swamp Tours. His carefully designed tours of Honey Island, named for the bees that used to buzz around the area, will give you a thorough grounding in the problems and complexity of this ecosystem. The highlight of the tour, however, is the sheer beauty of the Louisiana swamp. Yes, you will see some alligators. Bald eagle sightings are also common. Pirates used to prowl the swamp, and local legend even claims that a monster makes his home here (ask the tour guide).
