The Cajun Prairie, a 2.5-million-acre wilderness in 1600, was occupied by Native Americans and the native prairie plants and animals. Today, this prairie is listed as "critically imperiled" by the Louisiana Natural Heritage Program. Literally less than 100 acres remain in narrow strips and small pieces dotting the landscape. Learn more about a group of devoted prairie ecologists and enthusiasts who are attempting to recreate the Cajun Prairie as a sustainable landscape, a remarkable biodiversity garden and a tribute to our natural heritage.
