Bird House Activity: Poverty Point
Poverty Point State Historic Site presents a hands-on activity for guests ages 8 and up to paint a birdhouse. Guests are welcome to learn about the Poverty Point Culture and the large scale earthworks built -- noting that the largest mound was built in the shape of a bird.
Participants have the opportunity to paint a miniature birdhouse to take home and enjoy. There will also be a discussion of the importance of hunting and gathering and birds to the Poverty Point Culture. Families can bring a picnic for lunch at the park.
