This is a wildlife refuge in Southwest Louisiana, east of Sabine NWR. Although established in 1937 to provide wintering habitat for waterfowl, Lacassine NWR supports many communities of wildlife. Located at the edge of Grand Lake and 15 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, the refuge covers 32,625 acres, nearly half of which is Lacassine Pool. This huge freshwater impoundment was built for waterfowl after the refuge was subdivided for better water level control. The remaining areas are natural freshwater marsh, open water, and a small amount of upland. An undisturbed 3300-acre area on the south edge of the refuge is a declared wilderness area.
