Audubon Nature Institute Launches Virtual Animal Visits

Audubon Nature Institute’s Education department is launching a new Virtual Animal Visits program on February 17, 2022.  

The 20-minute presentation features an exclusive and up-close encounter with a wild friend along with an Audubon Educator for live Q&A. This virtual experience is best suited for groups of 4-6 people and will include one Zoom login. For more information visit:  

“Creating opportunities for people to connect with nature is an important part of Audubon’s mission,” said Audubon Nature Institute’s Director of Education Llewellyn Everage. “My team and I can’t wait to meet people from near and far and to introduce them to Audubon’s amazing animals in a highly interactive and fun encounter. These virtual experiences are a great way for zoos and aquariums to interact with and inspire people who might not otherwise be able to come to our facilities.” 

Programs will be $50 for Audubon Members and $60 for non-Members and will be offered twice a day on Thursdays and Saturdays February 17 through May 14, 2022.
