Families Encouraged to Visit Multiple New Orleans Museum Gardens in October

NEW ORLEANS (October 5, 2012) - Families looking for outdoor activities this October can visit The National WWII Museum's Victory Garden, and other participating gardens in the New Orleans area, as part of the Garden Gateways program. The Victory Garden is open to the public each Saturday in October from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. All visitors can see what's growing in the garden and kids are invited to make a mini-scarecrow-perfect for fall decorating. Those who visit more than one local garden this October can enter to win a prize from the garden of their choice.

Participating gardens include the Victory Garden at The National WWII Museum, Longue Vue, New Orleans Botanical Garden, Hollygrove Market and Farm and the Medicinal Garden at the Pharmacy Museum. A punch card may be downloaded from any participating gardens' website. When the card has been punched twice, families can turn it in to the organization of their choice after October 31. In mid-November, a drawing at each organization will be held to determine prize winners.

For more information, please contact Lauren Handley, Education Program Coordinator, at 504.528.1944 x 229 or lhandley@nationalww2museum.org.

For more information about the Museum's Victory Garden, please visit http://www.nationalww2museum.org/learn/public-programming/victory-garden.html

The National WWII Museum tells the story of the American experience in the war that changed the world - why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today.  Dedicated in 2000 as The National D-day Museum and now designated by Congress as America's National WWII Museum, it celebrates the American Spirit, the teamwork, optimism, courage and sacrifice of the men and women who served on the battlefront and the Home Front.

For more information, call 877-813-3329 or 504-528-1944 or visit http://www.nationalww2museum.org/
