St. Tammany Parish Extension
St. Tammany Parish’s history was greatly influenced by the abundant sources of water within the parish. Artesian water is the key ingredient in two thriving parish products – Abita Water and Abita Beer. In 1956 the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway was completed.Today St. Tammany is one of the fastest growing parishes in Louisiana. There are 9 towns in St. Tammany Parish: Abita Springs, Bush, Covington, Folsom, Lacombe, Madisonville, Mandeville, Pearl River and Slidell.

Agriculture & Natural Resources
As area citizens continue to settle in the St. Tammany Parish area we have more homes equaling more lawns and landscaping. Master Gardeners have been trained to provide homeowner groups, schools and churches with management and maintenance of the grounds and gardens. Several vegetable seminars and educational plant shows provide area residents with their horticulture information. Additionally, forestry continues to play an important interest to St. Tammany residents. Landowners continue to seek information on how to maintain their forest within the urbanization of St. Tammany Parish.
