Kids to Parks Day at 14 La. parks, historic sites

Civil War-era children's games, a hike to learn which wild plants are edible and animal tracking for kids are among activities planned at Louisiana state parks and historic sites for the second National Kids to Parks Day.

Fourteen state parks and historic sites around Louisiana plan kids' activities on May 19.

It's promoted as a nationwide day of outdoor play, encouraging families to explore the outdoors and their nearby parks.

The National Park Service and the National Park Trust started the event last year.
