Description

Spanning about 26 miles, Acadiana Conservation Corridor WMA is a scenic easement located between the I-49 right-of-way west of the Bayou Boeuf-Cocodrie Diversion Canal. There is a small portion of private property within the boundaries of the corridor; the northern boundary of this property starts at the railroad crossing near mile marker 48 on I-49 and the southern boundary is approximately 1.3 miles from the railroad crossing.

This WMA is classified as bottomland hardwood; main overstory species include bitter pecan, overcup oak, sugarberry, swamp maple, water elm, and honey locust. This area has standing water for considerable periods after heavy rainfalls so understory vegetation is typical of poorly drained lands; common species include palmettos, deciduous holly, smilax, poison ivy, blackberry, dewberry, rattan, and peppervine, along with annual grasses and sedges.

Activities and Amenities

Hunting: Limited to deer by archery only. No other hunting or firearms are allowed on this WMA. See regulations for details.

Directions

Acadiana Conservation Corridor WMA can be accessed by boat only; public boat launches are available in Washington on Bayou Courtableau and at Hwy 29 on the west side of I-49. Self-clearing permits are available at these locations.
