Audubon Nature Institute Offers NORD Summer Camps Complimentary Admission

Audubon Nature Institute is thrilled to work with Park Partner the New Orleans Recreation Department to offer complimentary Zoo and Aquarium admission to NORD summer camp groups. 

“We are so excited to offer NORD campers the opportunity to experience nature at our attractions this summer,” said Audubon Vice President of Community Affairs Chimene Grant Saloy. “We believe that every person who comes through our gates has the power to impact the natural world for the better. We are committed to engaging and educating these young campers about the wonders of nature and encouraging them to take action to protect them.” 

This summer NORD is hosting 34 youth camps across New Orleans, and each camp will have the opportunity to visit the Zoo and Aquarium. 

These complimentary field trips are part of Audubon Nature Institute’s commitment to the Cooperative Endeavor Agreement among the city’s four Park Partners in the parks and recreation millage approved by Orleans Parish voters in 2019. 

Audubon is not currently offering any other groups or field trips at this time due to timed ticketing constraints. Audubon is working toward reopening to groups in the fall.
