Eunice, LA, March 11, 2016 -- LSU AgCenter Extension Associate Natalie McElyea announced today that the Youth Wetlands Program will be a participant in the 2016 Experience Louisiana Festival. The display will include lots of interesting information for children and adults, but we are excited to reveal that a really neat part of the exhibit will be live baby alligators! You do not want to miss this booth in the Walk-Through!
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Teaching students to be aware of the environment is the first step to their actively becoming environmental stewards.
The goal is for more people to understand the critical importance of upland and coastal wetlands and the need to prevent further loss.
The Youth Wetlands Education and Outreach Program is a statewide program that engages Louisiana youth in the fight against wetland loss. Aimed at fourth- through 12th-graders, a wetland-related curriculum and program materials are provided to educators across the state.
