Audubon Nature Institute to Participate in GiveNOLA Day

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Audubon Nature Institute will participate in GiveNOLA Day 2017 on Tuesday, May 2. Hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, GiveNOLA Day is the community’s fourth annual, 24-hour online charitable giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations that are making our region stronger, creating a vibrant community for all. Audubon is proud to be a participating not-for-profit.

“This is a significant opportunity for the community to support the conservation and wildlife education work we do at Audubon,” said Ron Forman, President and CEO of the not-for-profit Audubon Nature Institute. “The Zoo, Aquarium, and Butterfly Garden and Insectarium foster an emotional connection with animals to inspire visitors to help preserve nature. A gift to Audubon furthers our mission to save animals from extinction.”

The public is invited to visit from midnight to midnight on Tuesday, May 2 to make a donation. Every gift of more than $10 will receive a little lagniappe thanks to GiveNOLA Day’s generous sponsors and the Greater New Orleans Foundation.
