Odessa Water TraiL

The Odessa Water Trail provides paddlers with a unique opportunity to enjoy a scenic tour of Port Louisa National Wildlife Refuge and the Odessa Wildlife Management Area.  The trail winds through a Mississippi River bottom land habitat with ponds, chutes, timber, marshlands and flowers.  The paddler will have the opportunity to view ducks and gesses, water lily beds, pileated woodpeckers, cardinal flowers, great blue herons, pelicans and so much more!  Explore places called Horseshoe Bend, Sand Run, Beebe Pond and Yankee Chute.  More information on the Odessa Water Trail can be found on the Louisa County Conservation website.

Reflections of the Louisa Resource Area

The Reflections projects was designed to capture people "reflecting" on their life experiences that tie them to the local natural resources.  Thirteen long-time residents were interviewed and recorded.  Topics discussed include: geology, duck hunting, caves, horses, the 1993 flood, Big Sand Mound, piloting and native plants.  Contact Tri-Rivers to view a copy of the Reflections project.
