The Cypress Island Preserve is located approximately halfway between the town of Breaux Bridge and the city of Lafayette. Parking is available at the Visitor Center, located at 1264 Prairie Hwy where Rookery Road meets Prairie Hwy (LA 353).
The Visitor Center at The Cypress Island Preserve has so much to offer that even the wildlife visit occasionally! This little reptile was hiding behind one of the many photos on display there.
