Description:
The Acadiana Conservation Corridor WMA is a tract of land situated in the parishes of St. Landry, Evangeline, Avoyelles, and Rapides, owned by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. This scenic easement area lying between the I-49 right-of-way westward to the Bayou Boeuf-Cocodrie Diversion Canal, begins just north of the community of Washington, La. in St. Landry Parish and extends northward through Evangeline Parish, Avoyelles Parish, and the southern portion of Rapides Parish. The entire length of this area is approximately 26 miles and comprises approximately 2285 acres. A small portion of private property is within the boundaries of the corridor, with the north boundary of this poperty starting at the railroad crossing near mile marker 48 on I-49 and the south boundary approximateely 1.3 miles from the railroad crossing. Access to this area is by boat only, with public boat launches available in the community of Wahington, La. on Bayou Courtableau and at Hwy. 29 on the west side of I-49. Self-clearing permits are available at these locations. The area is classified as bottomland hardwoods, with the main overstory species being bitter pecan, overcup oak sugarberry, swamp maple, water elm, and honey locust, with other species occasionally occurring. Understory vegetation is typical for such poorly drained lands, which has standing water for considerable periods after heavy rainfalls. Common species include deciduous holly, smilax, poison ivy, blackberry, dewberry, rattan, and peppervine, along with annual grasses and sedges. Palmettos are present throughout the understory. Hunting on the Acadiana Conservation Corridor WMA is limited to deer by bowhunting only. No other hunting is allowed on this easement area. No firearms are allowed on this area. Additional information may be obtained from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries at 5652 Hwy. 182 Opelousas, La. 70570.
