HOUMA, La. (AP) - A Houma-based education center aimed at calling attention to the threat of eroding wetlands is planning for a new home.

The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1HLab48 ) that the South Louisiana Wetlands Discovery Center has entered into a lease agreement with Terrebonne Parish for a new site in Houma.

Construction should begin by summer or fall of 2016 if expected financing becomes available by then.

The first phase, a live wetlands exhibit, will include an outdoor pavilion, a boardwalk and an outdoor educational space. The cost for phase one is about $1.3 million.
