Audubon Nature Institute plans to reopen its facilities following closures due to the impacts of Hurricane Ida in two phases. The first phase begins Thursday, September 16, 2021, with the reopening of Audubon Aquarium of the Americas and Audubon Louisiana Nature Center. The second phase will include Audubon Zoo, Golf Club at Audubon Park, and Audubon Park Tennis opening on Saturday, September 18, 2021.
Portions of the jogging path in Audubon Park are scheduled to reopen for limited use this week. Bicycles will not be permitted until the entire Park opens this Saturday.
Audubon is offering a 50% discount on all admission to the Zoo and Aquarium to Louisiana residents. The offer is valid online and at the front gate for up to four tickets from September 16th through October 3, 2021.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to all in our community that have been impacted by the storm,” said Audubon Nature Institute President and CEO Ron Forman. “We hope that a visit to the Zoo or Aquarium and the opportunity to connect with the natural world can provide a little solace to our community during this difficult time.”
