The Breathtaking Homestead In Louisiana You Must Visit This Year

If you’re a fan of Louisiana’s forests, state parks, and nature preserves, then you should know about Caroline Dormon. The list of her accomplishments is long: she was an author, a teacher, an archaeologist, an environmentalist, and a conservationist just to name a few. She was the first woman to work in environmental education and the first woman to work for the Division of Forestry in Louisiana, and without her, we would not have the Kisatchie National Forest, Louisiana’s only national forest. She passed away in 1971 but her legacy lives on in her homestead of Briarwood, which you can visit and learn all about the life of this extraordinary woman. 

Visit Briarwood’s website to learn more and schedule a tour. Check out our previous article to learn more about the Kisatchie National Forest, one of the many gifts Caroline Dormon left for future generations of Louisianans to enjoy.
