The South Louisiana Wetlands Discovery Center partners with the Mandalay National Wildlife Refuge to offer the Mandalay Trail Adventure in the Fall and Spring. Students travel from the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum to the Mandalay Nature Trail to participate in a wetlands foliage scavenger hunt. Teachers lead the students through the hunt and explain the differences between native and non-native species, invasive and non-invasive plants, and the benefits as well as the harmful characteristics of some of them. Students then travel back to the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum to discuss their findings and participate in other hands-on learning activities.
This program is open to 30 students in 4th, 5th or 6th grade and takes place from 8AM to 4PM. The Spring program will take place on Tuesday, April 7, 2015 and the Fall program will take place on Tuesday, November 24, 2015. There is a $30 fee to participate in this program to help defray the expense of transportation and workbooks.
