If you’re looking for new and exciting things to do in Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou, look no further than the Jean Lafitte Wetlands Acadian Cultural Center!
Throughout the month of June and open to the public Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, the Center will be home to the Smithsonian Water/Ways Traveling Exhibit, which demonstrates the necessity of water and how it influences the cultural, environmental, and historical landscape of Louisiana's Cajun Bayou.
The (educational) fun doesn’t just stop with the exhibit, as the Center will host special events all month long in tandem with the temporary display. A photography exhibit will feature images of the coast, a “Water in Flight” bird-watching boat ride will be led by a professional ornithologist, and a family-friendly “Water Discovery Day” with water activities and experiments cap off an exciting array of events.
Here’s the Water/Ways schedule of events:
Saturday, June 12: “Water in Art” Family Fun Day from 10 a.m. to 12 noon
