Guiding on a winter day
Your guide for Cajun Country Swamp Tours, Walter “Butch” Guchereau, grew up on a small Cajun farm located on the banks of the Bayou Teche in Breaux Bridge, La. where he still resides today. From early on his father introduced him to the swamps of Cajun Country which he fell in love with. By hunting, sport and commercial fishing and just plain exploring he came to know the swamps like his own backyard. Butch put himself through college by working summers on dredge boats located in Louisiana on the Mississippi and Atchafalaya River systems where he experienced the dynamic forces that have built the land of Acadiana over the last 25,000 years. He learned how the rivers, bayous, wetland areas, man’s interventions and coastal erosion are all intertwined and constantly changing.
The countless enjoyable hours he has spent in the swamplands of Cajun Country coupled with college degrees in Zoology and Botany has given Butch a rich insight into the ecology of Louisiana swamps.
Today he enjoys taking people into nature and sharing with them the beauty and tranquility of his “backyard” while explaining secrets of Mother Nature and some interesting observations that you will be able to see. Interlaced with natural history he relates how the ever resourceful Acadians developed the Cajun Culture around the swamp ecosystem of Cajun Country.
