Les Explorateurs de la Louisiane

Crystal (Louisiana Explorers Club)

The Louisiana Explorers History Club began in 1992 at Vinton Northside Middle School and became a school favorite last year at Oak Park Middle School in Lake Charles. Chosen students do Saturday field studies across the state gaining valuable hands-on experience about Louisiana. The club visits everything from capitols to forts, rural life settings to plantation homes, dining at dancin' places and fancy places, hearing ghost stories and telling lots of stories. They leave at 5 am and return at 11 pm, work on essays and historical rubbings, do architectural drawings and speed sketches, and travel on "good" days and "rainy days".

In 2001 The Explorers received two grants to help with expenses. The Michael Jordan Foundation Grant and the Louisiana Heritage Grant helped students travel to seven hitorial sites around Louisiana.
