CADDO PARISH PARKS AND RECREATION LAUNCHES NEW MOBILE "AGENTS OF DISCOVERY" PROGRAM
Caddo Parish, LA – Caddo Parish Parks and Recreation is excited to announce “Agents of Discovery” as the newest addition in the line-up of free, self-guided educational activities offered at Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park.
The educational mobile application encourages residents and their families to get outdoors and explore nature through a fun, geo-triggered experience. Users download the free app to their smart phones and assume the role of a secret agent, unlocking challenges and completing missions while visiting the nature park. The Agents of Discovery platform uses the latest in augmented reality to incorporate technology into nature study.
“We’re excited to add a new learning platform to our educational programs here at Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park,” said Education Coordinator Stacy Gray. “The Agents of Discovery app is an engaging way for parents and teachers to lead children in making nature discoveries and connections while visiting the park—think Pokémon GO, but more educational,” said Gray.
To play Agents of Discovery, download the free app from your favorite app store. Once you arrive to Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park, simply open the app and select the mission.
Once all the challenges are completed agents can collect a prize from the Visitor Center.
Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park, located at 8012 Blanchard Furrh Road, is open Wednesday through Saturday from 8am – 5pm, and Sundays from 1pm – 5pm. Call (318) 929-2806 or stop by the Visitor Center for help getting started with the Agents of Discovery app.
