West Feliciana Parish Extension
West Feliciana Parish offers many opportunities for outdoor recreation such as photography, bird watching, hiking, canoeing, biking, hunting and fishing. Cat Island National Wildlife Refuge with the National Champion Bald Cypress Tree is just one of the areas that attract nature lovers to the parish. Major employers in the parish are the River Bend Nuclear Power Plant and Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. West Feliciana is known for its excellent school system which consistently ranks in the top 5 in the state. 

Agriculture & Natural Resources

Commercial horticulture enterprises in West Feliciana include the Feliciana Farmers Market and large-scale production of vegetables and row crops at Angola State Penitentiary. Educational needs of producers are addressed primarily through farm visits and annual seminars tailored to grower needs. Annual workshops are offered to home gardeners in addition to home visits and phone calls to address specific issues. Assistance with the local farmers market includes coordinating an early season tour of farms with LSU AgCenter specialists. Farmers learn from each others’ farms while getting specialized help in vegetables, diseases, and insects.

Several teachers in West Feliciana now participate in school gardens. Extension agents and Master Gardeners work with students in the gardens as an outdoor classroom with weekly lessons that reinforce in-class lessons, LEAP tests, and grade level expectations.
