Today's featured list

This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.

On Mondays and Fridays, the Main Page includes a section where an introduction to one of Wikipedia's featured lists is displayed. The current month's queue can be found here. The lists appearing on the main page are scheduled by the featured list director Giants2008.

To appear on the main page, a list must already be featured. For more information on the featured list promotion process, please see Wikipedia:Featured list candidates, and the featured list criteria. In addition to being featured, a main page blurb must be drafted, which introduces the subject of the list. Main page blurbs are roughly 1,000 characters in total length, with no endlines, reference tags, alternate names, or extraneous bolding, although the link to the specified featured list should be bolded. You can submit a list at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/submissions.

At the moment, lists are scheduled by the FL director or the FL delegates, although we will eventually be devising a community-based system for selecting each day's list. We encourage editors to submit and review as many blurbs as possible. If you notice a problem with an upcoming main-page featured list, please leave a message talkpage here.

Further ideas on how you can participate can be found at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/get involved.

Frank Otis House in Fairview-Riverside State Park

The state of Louisiana has 22 state parks, which are governed by the Office of Lieutenant Governor, a division of the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism. Louisiana's state park system began in 1934 when the state passed legislation that created the State Parks Commission of Louisiana. In 1952, legislation broadened the role of the commission to include the development of outdoor recreation programs and resources. After the State Parks Commission of Louisiana was formed in 1934, 7 sites were acquired for use as state parks. During World War II, the rate of new park acquisition declined with the addition of only one new site, Sam Houston Jones State Park in 1944. In 1966, the National Park Service reviewed Louisiana's state parks system and made many recommendations, which led to specific guidelines and requirements for state parks. Louisiana state parks are selected on the criteria that they must be natural areas of unique or exceptional scenic value. (Full list...)
