A community pinwheel garden has been planted at the Calcasieu Courthouse in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month.
More than 15,000 pinwheels are being planted statewide this month. Businesses, schools, organizations and individuals are joining with Prevent Child Abuse Louisiana's Community Pinwheel Gardens in nine cities.
