Spending time outdoors has a tremendous effect on you, both mentally and physically. Studies have shown that being outdoors can lower levels of cortisol, a hormone that’s a marker for stress, and we could all use a little less stress in our lives. When the urge to spend a little time under the sun strikes, there’s one nature preserve in Louisiana that’s perfect for a day of outdoor adventure.
Be sure to visit the park’s website before visiting, as it may have trail closures due to storms or alligator nestings. If you’ve ever visited Barataria Preserve, share your experience with us in the comments!
