32 hour camping tour for 1-4 guests Your overnight, round-trip Eco-Adventure will depart from the industrial port in Morgan City and include two days immersed in the southern most part of The Atchafalaya Basin - the final destination being a shell beach cove on the Gulf. The first day of your trip, you’ll proceed from fresh-water to brackish marsh, and eventually to the some of the most pristine salt-water marshes still remaining on Louisiana's coast. Bird lovers will enjoy seeing pelicans, terns, avocet, gulls, and more. Your trip will include meals, a campsite on the beach, morning fishing, irresistible photo opportunities, and a fully immersive wildlife experience. Personal camping gear and tents required. Topics of discussion include: Nature Study observations of flora and fauna Commercial oyster, crab and shrimp fisheries Land loss from salt water intrusion and subsidence Levee protection and coastal restoration projects Survey of industries served by this eco-system
