Bonnet Carre Spillway

Description:

Over the years, the Bonnet Carre Spillway has developed into an extensively used outdoor recreation area with approximately 250,000 visitors enjoying the spillway each year. These lands and waters provide opportunities for fishing, crawfishing, hunting, dog training, camping and wildlife watching. More specialized activities include retriever dog field trials and model airplane flying competitions. The spillway contains two boat launching sites and a primitive campground, provided by St. Charles Parish. Additional onsite management is planned to enhance the recreation and natural resource values of the project lands and waters.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
