Jake Wood, head of marketing and public relations for the new aquarium coming to downtown Shreveport, talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert and Erin about the state of construction, how the site - the old Barnwell Center - will be renovated, and what types of aquatic creatures will there be for area folks to see.

In addition, Wood tells KEEL listeners about the grand opening, currently set for August of 2017, the people charged with turning the vacant and deteriorating Barnwell in a show place, and how the company overseeing the operation of the facility has a track record second to none.
