Bayou Bend Virtual Family Day “Water”


Free Fun for All Ages
This month’s Virtual Family Day explores the important role that water has played in America’s history and in the lives of its residents.

Live via Zoom
• Sunday, April 18, 2021 at 2 p.m. Central Time

Water is an invaluable resource—from the oceans that settlers crossed to reach the American continent; to the rivers that moved goods from one place to another; to the rains that help grow food. Discover connections between this vital element and the art and gardens of Bayou Bend. Afterward, registered participants receive access to a video of the event.
