Project Description

The project will enhance recreational activities within the Barataria Preserve, which is located within the Jean Lafitte National Historic Park in Jefferson Parish. Recreational activities will be enhanced through the replacement of and renovations to the existing wooden Visitor Center trail within the preserve, enhancements to dirt trails within the preserve, and placement of new wayside exhibit signs on the Visitor’s Center trail. The improvements to the Visitor’s Center trail will make the trail compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, resilient to regular flooding, sustainable, and safer for visitors to the preserve.
