The Great Mississippi River Delta is an eye-opening place. Whether you want to have a first-hand experience with its ecology, history, rich food sources, or diverse cultures, the Delta has something for everyone to see.

But it also provides visitors with some form of a learning experience. Tourists and locals alike will learn a great deal about the ecosystems surrounding New Orleans and how people, animals, and the environment interact with one another, and have a greater appreciation for what they’re seeing.

That’s why The Great Delta Tours started educational tours for school groups. What better way is there to learn scientific, university-level course content than to apply that content to the real world?
