Visit: Audubon Louisiana Nature Center, 11000 Lake Forest Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70127-2816

Audubon Louisiana Nature Center is a cherished community resource. Located adjacent to Joe Brown Park in New Orleans East on 86 acres of hardwood bottomland forest, its creation was a project of the Junior League of Greater New Orleans, opening March 23, 1980.

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina flooded the Nature Center grounds, essentially destroying the facility but Audubon moved forward with the rebuilding process. Now the next chapter begins for the Nature Center, and we are excited to announce that it has reopened with modern buildings, beautiful nature trails and new programs celebrating the wonders of nature.

Duration: 3 hours
