we started organizing at least one field trip a month. Since than, some of what we have done includes; going on bike rides and picnic along the mississippi river, the Audubon Zoo where we saw lots of gators, birds, elephants and other animals and hung out on monkey hill, an Easter party in city park a trip to Barrataria National Park, were we had lunch and took a long walk through the Louisiana swamps, and one of the highlights, going to the beach in mississippi.
