The Snyder Museum is hosting an event for area children.

Your Own Back Yard children’s camp will have activities focusing on Louisiana, its communities, artists and history. Campers will be able to participate in a crime scene investigations day as well as meet local art educator Dianne Patrick, who will talk about Louisiana artist George Rodrigue and his famous Blue Dog and northeast Louisiana author and environmental educator Amy Ouchley, who will share her knowledge of our area’s natural world.
