Some Louisiana urban environments have a multicultural, multilingual heritage, being so strongly influenced by a mixture of 18th-century French, Spanish, Native American, and African cultures that they are considered to be exceptional in the US.Before the American purchase of the territory in 1803, the current Louisiana State had been both a French colony and for a brief period, a Spanish one.In the post-Civil War environment, Anglo-Americans increased the pressure for Anglicization, and in 1921, English was for a time made the sole language of instruction in Louisiana schools before a policy of multilingualism was revived in 1974.

These contain a rich southern biota; typical examples include birds such as ibis and egrets.
There are also many species of tree frogs, and fish such as sturgeon and paddlefish.
