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.


A Shreveport science teacher is canoeing more than 370 miles to the Gulf of Mexico to raise awareness about Louisiana's watersheds. Jon Soul will give a presentation tonight titled "Bayou to Bay - Exploring Louisiana's Watersheds" at 6:30 p.m. at the Red River National Wildlife Refuge hosted by the Friends of the Refuge.
