This event is free and open to the public.

This summer, please join the Capitol Park Museum in partnership with the Louisiana National Heritage Area for Preserving Our Natural Abundance, a celebration of the richness and beauty of Louisiana’s natural landscape.  This series of family programs, Lunchtime Lagniappe lectures, and evening events will underscore the interconnectedness of life in our ecosystem, call attention to the critical environmental issues facing the state, and celebrate the ways that people appreciate and embrace Louisiana’s natural abundance.

What are heritage areas? What do they accomplish? Why do they exist? Come find out the all about Louisiana’s very own “Foreign Country” and find out how the National Heritage Area program helps protect and develop the culture and heritage of Louisiana’s Atchafalaya River region and how the heritage area came to fruition.

Steven Fullen, Executive Director of the Atchafalaya National Heritage Area, will speak about the influential role of the Heritage Area.
