AUDUBON NATURE INSTITUTE

Audubon Nature Institute is comprised of Audubon Zoo, Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, Entergy IMAX Theatre, and Audubon Park and Golf Course.

These museums and parks are dedicated to nature and act as an educational resource, an environmental guardian, and venue for family entertainment. We strive to educate individuals with hands-on interaction and one-of-a-kind learning adventures about the natural world.

Audubon offers a variety of camps, festivals, and events for visitors of all ages. Join us as our bug chefs create delectable protein-filled chocolate "chirp" cookies at Bug Appétit or dress up for Audubon Zoo's largest fundraising event, Whitney Zoo-To-Do!

Individuals can also host their own private parties at one of our locations. From weddings to birthday picnics, Audubon offers a unique venue for all of your events.

"Audubon Insectarium, located in the U.S. Custom House on Canal Street, encourages you to use all five senses as you explore North America’s largest museum devoted to insects and their relatives. You’ll discover why insects are the building blocks of all life on our planet in our newest one-of-a-kind attraction. Thousands of live and preserved specimens illustrate the vast diversity of shape, size and color of Earth’s largest group of animals. Within the Insectarium you will shrink to bug size; wander through a mysterious Louisiana swamp; join the active audience of an awards show for bugs; and be captivated by thousands of butterflies in an Asian garden."

"Audubon Park (historically French: Plantation de Boré[1]) is a city park located in the Uptown neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana. The park is approximately six miles to the west of the city center of New Orleans and sits on land that was purchased by the city in 1871. It is bordered on one side by the Mississippi River and on the other by St. Charles Avenue, directly across from Tulane University and Loyola University. The park is named in honor of artist and naturalist John James Audubon, who began living in New Orleans in 1821."

New Orleans   |   September, 2010   |   Park

"Description: Audubon Park opened in 1898 and was the site of the World Cotton Centennial in 1884. People travel from near and far to marvel at and enjoy the ever-beautiful oak trees, lagoons, and expansive green space located within the park. For the millions who use the park for picnics, relaxing, walking, running, cycling and special events there is no better place in New Orleans for recreational fun and relaxation."

New Orleans Wedding In September
New Orleans   |   September, 2010   |   Attraction

"The Audubon Zoo is a world of its own - see exotic animals, reptiles, elephants and more. Walk through The Louisiana Swamp exhibit which is a re-creation of a 1930s swamp settlement equipped with a trapper’s cottage, Spanish moss, white alligators and cypress knees. Be sure to check the schedule for alligator feedings - you won’t want to miss this! Speaking of feeding…are you getting hungry? In the Cajun Swamp there is a restaurant overlooking the swamp. Have a snack break in the bayou and relax with a daiquiri or cold beer. Its easy to spend hours in the zoo, so by the time you see it all, you may be getting restless for some lunch. Head back through Audubon Park until you hit St. Charles Ave. and take a right towards downtown. Take your time while you wander the avenue known for historic homes, churches and parks."

"(504) 565-3033 Visit one of the best aquariums in the world. Katrina was detrimental to the building, however, it is reopening and reorganizing. You can see the rainforest, visit the penguins, see glow-in-the-dark water animals, etc. There is also an IMAX theater here which has different shows. The aquarium is right on the river, so then afterwards, you can take a stroll alongside the Mighty Mississippi, on the Woldenberg park path, back to the heart of the french quarter. Worth seeing! Sometimes if you are really lucky, the Natchez Steamboat will serenade you and you can hum along to the tunes while you are walking."
