Estuary Water Table
Explore the importance of the waterways of South Eastern Louisiana including Bayou Lafourche, the Gulf of Mexico, and our Estuary system. The exhibit shows the interaction of water and land from the pumps at Donaldsonville to the Gulf of Mexico. Children can explore pumps, operate the boom crane on an oilrig, and move locks all in a water table. The mural depicts the landscape and wildlife of the estuary and life in Southern Louisiana
This two-story signature exhibit sparks their curiosity as they all about oil platforms are. Up top, they can operate a crane, fish for different types of saltwater fish, learn and what the platforms do and what the black sludge makes, like their tennis shoes, basketballs, colors, and more! Activities below include an exhibit on our Gulf seafood.
