BATON ROUGE: Sometimes along the course of a day’s work, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) biologists, outreach workers and others capture awesome views of the state and its people that many of us rarely get a chance to see.

What they witness is often captured in photographs that include the allure and serenity of lakes and rivers at sunset, a colorful butterfly on a flower, and the joy on the faces of children and their parents participating together in various outdoor programs. And, there are the extra rare sights found in the nooks and crannies deep into the woods.

Those photographs are part of a LDWF photo exhibit on display through July at the East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library in Baton Rouge, at 7711 Goodwood Blvd.

The dozens of photos not only capture great vistas and animals of Louisiana, but they also tell a pictorial story of the programs operated by LDWF. The LDWF exhibit includes three walls of photographs displayed on the first and second floor of the library.

“These photos provide vivid proof of the beauty of our Sportsman’s Paradise as seen through the eyes of LDWF’s finest who work in virtually every corner of the state,” said LDWF Secretary Jack Montoucet. “We are delighted that the East Baton Rouge Parish Library provided this great venue to show this exhibit and to tell our story.

“I think the idea of seeing photos of children and parents enjoying our programs underscores how hunting, fishing, boating and other outdoor activities brings families together in Louisiana.’’
