Burden Center
Burden Center Video
(Video) The Burden Center is home to the All-America rose garden, nature trails and a conference center. Much of the research focuses on ornamental plants, turfgrasses, and fruits and vegetables. A research goal is to find out what plants can perform best under the hot, humid conditions of Louisiana. Visitors to the station see the results of award-winning research and relax among beautiful roses, azaleas and camellias and wander the trails that meander through the wooded grounds.
