Shreveport science educator Jon Soul gives presentations about his Bayou to Bay program to help students and civic groups better understand and appreciate Louisiana's waterways.
A Shreveport science teacher will spend spring break canoeing 150 miles -- from Simmesport, La., to the Atchafalaya Bay -- to raise awareness about the state’s waterways. This is the third leg of a nearly 400-mile journey that began in a Shreveport storm drain one year ago. Jon Soul has created the Bayou to Bay educational program to help young people become more appreciative of the watersheds around them.
Thousands of people are expected to stroll through Betty Virginia Park in Shreveport Wednesday night. The walking path will be lined with 1,000 carved pumpkins. The event, Pumpkin Shine on Line, is in its 21st year. It's headed up by the Southfield School Parent's Association.
