Poverty Point World Heritage Site

Visitors to Poverty Point World Heritage Site are invited to take part in a ranger-led cooking demonstration using acorns which would have been an important part of the Native American diet at Poverty Point 3500 years ago. The ranger will explain how the acorns were processed to make them edible and show visitors how the acorns may have been cooked at the site. Curious guests are more than welcome to have a taste of the cooked acorn products after they are prepared. The event will take place on Saturday, November 12th at noon.
