On The Cover 
Louisiana pine snakes are a fading memory of the Texas and Louisiana piney woods.  Not seen in central Louisiana since the 1960s, the efforts of the Species Survival Plan (SSP) and its partners may be able to change that.  For years to come, SSP participants will produce dozens of Louisiana pine snakes to be released to their ancestral home.
