Free Admission for Taylor/Audubon Students and Families
Taylor Family Free Day - Saturday, May 20
Louisiana’s best students and their families can celebrate their good grades on Taylor Family Free Day at Audubon Nature Institute on May 20.
Taylor/Audubon Students and Scholars, along with their parents or guardians and two family members or friends, may enjoy a complimentary visit to Audubon Zoo, Audubon Aquarium of the Americas and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium on Taylor Family Free Day.
"We are happy to continue our longstanding partnership with the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation. The Taylor/Audubon Students and Scholars program is a perfect way to reward young people for working hard in the classroom."
Taylor Scholars will also enjoy free admission to the New Orleans Museum of Art on May 20. The Taylor/NOMA Scholars Program was created 20 years ago through an endowment from the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation.
At Audubon Zoo, Taylor Students and Scholars also enjoy discounts at the Cool Zoo splash park, Endangered Species Carousel, Swamp Train and purchases at Audubon concessions and gift shops.
Check in at the membership window at NOMA and Audubon attractions with your Taylor Card before entering and be sure to bring a photo ID.
The Patrick F. Taylor Foundation has dedicated more than $900,000 to the Taylor/Audubon Students and Scholars Program.
That endowment has established programs with Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, Audubon Zoo and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium and allowed them to continue in perpetuity.
Eligible students earn a one-year membership to Audubon Aquarium of the Americas and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium for achieving a 2.5 grade point average or higher.
Students who earn a grade point average of 3.0 or above also qualify for a one-year membership to Audubon Zoo.
The program is open to all Louisiana students in grades 7 through 12, whether attending public, private, or parochial schools. Parents or guardians may accompany students free of charge.
