(03/06/23) BATON ROUGE, La. — The LSU AgCenter’s AgMagic event, which educates visitors about the importance of agriculture, will return to Baton Rouge and Greater New Orleans this spring.
For almost two decades, this annual, free event has taken thousands of children and adults alike on an interactive journey through several facets of Louisiana agriculture. Through exhibits and activities focusing on crops, forestry, animals, insects, aquaculture and nutrition, AgMagic emphasizes the many ways these industries enhance daily life.
School groups will tour AgMagic on the River at Docville Farm in Violet March 21 to 24. The exhibit will open to the public March 25.
The Baton Rouge edition of AgMagic, held in LSU’s Parker Coliseum, will feature school tours from March 27 to 31 and public days April 1 and 2.
“As a youth development professional with a love for Louisiana agriculture, AgMagic is an event near and dear to my heart,” said Hannah Devall, AgCenter animal science and agricultural literacy and awareness specialist. “We look forward to welcoming students from surrounding parishes to this event for them to gain a first-hand experience that brings Louisiana agriculture to life in a way that the students can experience while on LSU’s campus.”
AgMagic will travel to Alexandria and Shreveport in the fall.
