Wildlife Festivals

L.E.A.R.N. has a presence at all the local wildlife celebrations. The main ones in NW Louisiana are: 
The Bloom! Festival at Norton Art Gallery in late March
The Fall Wildlife Celebration at the Red River National Wildlife Refuge on the third Saturday in October
National Hunting & Fishing Day Festival at the Bodcau Wildlife Management Area in late September

Field-herping Trips

Our president leads hikes to observe reptiles, amphibians, and other flora and fauna. We do these at various locations, such as Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park, the Red River National Wildlife Refuge, the Kisatchie National Forest, and other less-known spots we have discovered and got permissions for.

Besides our impromptu trips, we usually have formal trips on or around April 16th, July 4th, and September 11th each year. Follow our Facebook page for details.

Herpetology Workshops

Our president hosts herp workshops once or twice a year. These are typically conducted at the Red River National Wildlife Refuge in Bossier City, Louisiana. These range from 3-6 hours, and are a great way to get a well-rounded introduction to reptiles and amphibians.

Micha is also willing to give workshops to groups in other areas, particularly Master Naturalist groups. Use the request an event form if you have a group that might be interested in these classes.

Animal Presentations

Our president brings our Animal Ambassadors around to kids of all ages and talks about their natural history. Kids love reptiles and amphibians, so this is always a hit!
