     Cypress Nature Study Center was founded in 1977 as a preserve for nature study, the center is devoted to celebrating and exploring life through nature by sharing the excitement and fun of our natural world. The Nature Center's multi-use facility includes a large Interpretive Center, classroom, animal lab, where you will see fish, crawfish, turtles, and our alligators "Claudette and Clovis," and 4.5 miles of trails situated on an 84-acre forest and wetland area. The Nature Center provides educational programs and services to students, teachers, scouts, and families throughout northwest Louisiana, southwestern Arkansas, and east Texas.

     The Nature Center's interpretive stations help you discover nature by looking, touching, feeling and interacting with the exhibits and live animals. On our "touch table" you can see and feel a snake skin, bird feathers, deer antlers, and many different types of rocks. The Center also has 10 trails totaling approximately 4.5 miles. There are rustic dirt trails and a quarter mile section of trails designed for wheelchair accessibility. Our 84-acre natural area of bottomland and upland hardwoods, educational inlet, and lake is a sanctuary to a wide variety of songbirds, small mammals, birds of prey, wetland animals, and a variety of plants and fungi.
