Marking history on the river
The Louisiana Historical marker "Captain Bennett's Landing" will be unveiled at 4 p.m., Friday, at the Mississippi River Old Ferry Landing in St. Francisville. Refreshments will follow at the West Feliciana Historical Society on Ferdinand Street.
Watch those frogs
Volunteers are invited to join Baton Rouge Zoo’s FrogWatch Program for 2018.
FrogWatch volunteers provide data used to prevent future declines in the frog and toad populations while learning more about the animals, which play an important role as indicators of an ecosystem’s health.
Training sessions will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center Education Building and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 14 at Baton Rouge Zoo’s Education Building. Optional “Jeopardy”-style trivia will be offered immediately after each training session.
