Free Jumpin’ into Summer celebration Saturday

Posted By on Fri, Jun 1, 2012 at 10:06 PM

The Audubon Nature Institutes Wetland Express will present creatures from the wetlands at Jumpin into Summer.

The annual Jumpin’ into Summer at the Covington Trailhead celebration starts at 10 a.m. and runs until noon tomorrow (Saturday, June 2).

The City of Covington sponsors the kickoff to summer with activities that are children- and family-friendly. Audubon Nature Institute’s Wetland Express will show attendees live animals that are indigenous to Louisiana’s wetlands and present information about their habits, needs and importance in the ecosystem. Lauticeanna Party Art will offer face painting, and other summer-oriented activities are planned.

The Covington Trailhead (419 N. New Hampshire St., Covington), is a resting station for people bicycling or walking on the 28-mile Tammany Trace, a paved recreational trail that goes through Covington, Abita Springs, Mandeville, Lacombe and Slidell. It has become a popular spot for gatherings — a farmers market is held there on Wednesdays — and there’s a large playground nearby that is fully accessible to children with special needs. The Trailhead is in downtown Covington, a popular commercial district filled with restaurants, boutiques, galleries and more.
