Caroline Dormon, Women’s History Month Featured on LDMA This month, our LDMA, the Louisiana Digital Media Archive (www.ladigitalmedia.org) highlights Women’s History Month. It’s time to meet Caroline Dormon, who is known as the first female forester in Louisiana. Back in the 1930’s Caroline began to lobby lawmakers to create and fund a state Arboretum just outside of Ville Platte. Louisiana was the first state in the south to create a funded state Arboretum. Since its beginning in 1964, the Arboretum has grown. It now contains 600 acres, nearly six miles of hiking trails and a 6,000 square foot Nature Center in addition to the Caroline Dormon Lodge.
