Wild Nights and Insect Adventures

A group of kids hold butterfly nets as part of the Wild Nights Insect Adventure at the Audubon Zoo.

Looking for Bugs, Day or Night!

Ever wonder which marvelous moths and beautiful beetles are out and about at night? And what about the darting dragonflies and active ants that fly and crawl about during our hot summer days? Join Audubon entomologists at Audubon Wilderness Park and Audubon Louisiana Nature Center and learn about the fascinating bugs that inhabit south Louisiana. You’ll see lots of insects and spiders while hiking trails and (at night) others that are attracted to lights at Audubon’s facilities on the west bank and in eastern New Orleans.
