Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center
—Atchafalaya Water Heritage Trail —Interconnectedness is an integral part of life for Bluebonnet Swamp, which helps to alleviate floods and serve as a filter for sediment and pollutants from the surrounding areas. Bluebonnet Swamp is a combination cypress-tupelo swamp and magnolia-beech forest made up of the swamp itself and the surrounding higher land of the Pleistocene terrace. The area drains south into Bayou Fountain, which flows along Highland Road between the natural levee of the Mississippi River to the west and the Pleistocene terrace to the east. The bayou continues flowing southeast and empties into Bayou Manchac, the Rigolets and the Gulf of Mexico.
