COLUMBUS , INDIANA (The Republic) - The Nature Conservancy has given its 586-acre White Kitchen tract in St. Tammany Parish to the Pearl River Wildlife Management Area for recreation.

The tract is near the intersection of U.S. Highway 190 and U.S. Highway 90. It includes freshwater marsh, cypress-tupelo swamp and an elevated boardwalk, at the end of which people can see a bald eagle nest across the swamp.

State director Keith Ouchley says it was one of the first preserves the conservancy acquired in Louisiana.

Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Secretary Robert Barham says he appreciates the organization's long-term commitment to protecting Louisiana's natural resources.

The Pearl River Wildlife Management Area covers more than 35,000 acres — nearly 55 square miles — of habitats including bottomland hardwoods, cypress-tupelo swamp, shrub-scrub marsh, freshwater marsh and intermediate marsh.
