BATON ROUGE -- The Children’s Garden at the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden will conduct a program on bees and plants that attract pollinators on Sept. 30 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Children’s Garden Series will feature hands-on activities for 6-to-12-year-olds, said AgCenter fruit and vegetable specialist Kiki Fontenot

Gardens are living spaces with more than just plant life growing, Fontenot said. Children will discover the sounds and sights of insects that help us tend to our gardens. 

Participants will receive snacks and garden take-home crafts. Attendance is limited to 20-30.

A $15 fee is required for each child, and reservations are required in advance by email to Angie Wall at Parents or guardians are required to stay with children during the event. 

The LSU AgCenter Children’s Garden Series is hosted by the East Baton Rouge Master Gardeners. The Botanic Gardens at Burden is located off Interstate 10 at 4560 Essen Lane in Baton Rouge. 

Information about these and other events at the Botanic Gardens at Burden is available at or by calling 225-763-3990.
