French Immersion Excursion (paddling) - Oct. 6 and 10, 2015

     Published: 09.25.15

In honor of the 2015 Grand Révéil Acadien, the Atchafalaya National Heritage Area is hosting two French Immersion Excursions Tuesday, Oct. 6, and Saturday, Oct. 10, in Breaux Bridge. Enjoy a morning of paddling on Lake Martin, gliding beneath the Spanish moss canopy of cypress trees and learning about the flora and fauna of the lake from a native Louisiana French-speaking guide. Participants of varying French levels are welcome, but the one rule is that everyone speaks only in French for the duration of the immersion activity. The cost is $25.00 per person (includes two-person canoe or kayak, paddles and life jackets), and advanced registration is required. Contact Ashley Herrick at aherrick@crt.la.gov to register.
