It doesn’t hurt to learn a little while on vacation, for an educational activity that’s still fun for the whole family, you’ve got to check out the "Rockin’ at the Swamp" event at Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center, located just ten minutes from our downtown Baton Rouge hotel. On March 19th, visitors can explore the world of rocks, minerals and gemstones by hunting for pyrite in the Gold Mine, checking out fossils, making rock pythons and stone turtles and test their skills by scaling the rock climbing wall. Guests are also invited to take some gems home as unique gifts and souvenirs from the Rockhound Market! The event is a great way to sneak some learning in between a whole lot of fun.
