The Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park is the recognized center for outdoor interpretation in northwestern Louisiana.

Located three miles west of Blanchard, the 160-acre nature park contains a pine-oak-hickory forest accessible by five miles of nature trails. The park has an interpretive building, a rentable pavilion with restrooms, a handicapped-accessible trail, and several naturalists who provide information and interpretation to park visitors. Trails are well marked, identifying natural features and animal habitats. Nature oriented programs are available on an appointment basis.

An annual environmental day camp, called Earth Camp, is offered each summer in the park.
