In 2005, Audubon Nature Institute launched a special community relations program designed specifically to engage minority/underserved residents in the New Orleans metropolitan area.

Since then, over 2.3 million minority/underserved visitors of all ages have experienced the wonders of nature through Audubon's family of parks and museums.

Through special partnerships with local businesses, schools, churches, health organizations and social service organizations, African American, Hispanic American and Asian American families are able to make life long connections to nature and enjoy family entertainment they would not otherwise be able to access.

Whether it be discounted field trips for underpriviledged schools, a health information booth at Soul Fest, a business expo for local minority owned businesses, a UNCF Walk for Education, or a citywide Easter Egg hunt, Audubon Nature Institute remains committed to the minority/underserved populations in our community.
