Corn maze opens this weekend at Botanic Gardens
BATON ROUGE - LSU's corn maze is this weekend at the LSU Ag Center Botanic Gardens off Essen.
The four acre maze twists and turns in the shape of a tiger. As kids make their way through the maze they'll find a hay stack for climbing, information stations on corn, and giant sling shots at the end.
"When we do the hayrides, they actually get to see the agriculture products and they actually get to pick some and taste some," explained Dr. Jeff Kuehny, the Botanic Gardens Driector. "It's to realize and to understand that their food is all around them, and we grow it. It is actually produced in the state, in our surrounding areas, and harvested, and that's how it gets to the grocery store."
The maze is open from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 25. For $10 kids can go through the maze, take a hayride through the fields, pick their perfect pumpkin, and have dinner plus smores.
