LDWF restores access to waterways in Spring Bayou Wildlife Management Area
AVOYELLES- The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has completed the clearing of trees that blocked navigable waterways at the northeast corner of Spring Bayou Wildlife Management Area.
The area is also known as the bean fields.
Crews removed more than 100 trees that were cut down in 2014. The trees were blocking waterways that connected Cocodrie Bayou to Lake Valerie.
To clear the trees, crews used a marsh excavator and floated the machine along waterways within the WMA to the site then removed the trees.
