EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH – The BREC Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Area welcomes families and feathered friends to a celebration of all things waterfowl related at their annual Duck Duck Goose Day on Saturday, August 17 from 9a.m.-4 p.m.  


So, fly over to Bluebonnet Swamp for some end-of-summer family fun. Explore the cultural, historical, and artistic value of waterfowl carvings while viewing vintage and contemporary decoys, wood carvings, boats, and paddles displayed by carvers and collectors from throughout the Deep South and beyond. Enjoy hands-on activities like the Waterfowl Identification Hike, the Carving Corner where visitors use soap to carve their own mini duck decoys, the Duck Box inflatable jump house, live baby ducklings in the Duck Pen, waterfowl-themed carnival prize booths, face-painting and more. Need more information about your decoy heirlooms? There will be plenty of experts on hand to assist in evaluating your waterfowl collectibles.
