Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, and Audubon Nature Center remain closed to the public, and we do not yet have a timeline for reopening. Please follow Audubon on social media and check back here for more updates as the phased reopening of New Orleans continues.
Audubon Louisiana Nature Center is a cherished community resource. Located adjacent to Joe Brown Park in New Orleans East on 86 acres of hardwood bottomland forest, its creation was a project of the Junior League of Greater New Orleans, opening March 23, 1980.
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina flooded the Nature Center grounds, essentially destroying the facility but Audubon moved forward with the rebuilding process. Now the next chapter begins for the Nature Center, and we are excited to announce that it has reopened with modern buildings, beautiful nature trails and new programs celebrating the wonders of nature.
