What’s happening at LCM?

 

Plant & Play in the Edible Garden

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

Towering sunflowers and lush citrus trees border our edible garden, home to a variety of butterfly-attracting flowers and our own herbs and produce, including strawberries, watermelons, squash, beans, tomatoes, herbs, and eggplants. Visit for a morning sensory exploration and to learn all about how we plant, cultivate, and harvest in our special garden.

 

Story Time around the Museum

Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11:00 a.m.

LCM Literacy Specialist will lead a lively read-aloud of some of our favorite children’s classics and a variety of new delightful tales in different book nooks around the Museum. Through story time, we build print awareness, vocabulary, phonological skills and so much more. During your next visit, ask our literacy specialist for our Read to Me bookmark with tips for selecting, reading, and enjoying books from birth.

 

Sedimentation Table Demonstration in the Dig Into Nature Gallery

Fridays at 10:00 a.m.

At the sedimentation table, guests can discover the power of water as the ‘river’ weathers, erodes, and deposits sediment. In the delta, we explore the challenges Louisiana faces with coastal erosion as participants play the part of engineers, river pilots, farmers, and wildlife conservationists, working together to share the land and water. Sharing natural resources is complex, and this exhibit shows how to achieve it through cooperative, hands-on play.

 

Nature Explorations

Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.

Our Master Naturalists and nature lovers will lead a variety of nature explorations each Saturday to discover and admire the biodiversity in our own backyard. We will host a different theme each week, including a pollinator pathway, a sensory stroll, and a bioblitz!
