Jon Soul and Larry Raymond walk the Coates Bluff area

Jon Soul, Director of Outdoor Education for the Montessori School for Shreveport and member of ABetterShreveport, walked with Larry Raymond, Director of Parks and Recreation for Caddo Parish, through the beautiful Anderson Bayou and Coates Bluff area last week.

Jon, Larry, and Loren Demerath previewed the route to be established as a trail going from Sevier Street to Valencia Park. Larry noted a wide range of bird species while hiking, as he used the time partly for taking the annual spring inventory.

Along the way, they hiked through the abandoned cemeteries of Coates Bluff, once one of the two primary settlements of what became Shreveport.
