Special Events & Project Volunteers

Visitors learn about bugs at ZOObilation, the Audubon member event at Audubon Zoo.

With ten facilities across the New Orleans community, there’s always something happening at Audubon Nature Institute. Volunteer opportunities range from after-hour special events for adults and kids, conservation themed festivals, planting trees and flowers in the parks, and so much more!

Special events and projects volunteers can sign up for opportunities as their schedules allow, making it a great way to get involved.
