Audubon Zoo does its part to help spread the message of conservation with its annual Earth Fest celebration. Each third weekend in March, Louisiana bands, regional folk artists and environmental groups help show how small contributions by individuals can help save our precious environment.
This year’s Earth Fest will be held March 18-19, 2006 at the Audubon Zoo.
Special kids’ activities abound at Earth Fest such as creating toys from recyclable materials and observing art in progress by folk artists.
And for bigger kids, dancing to live music works up an appetite for spectacular New Orleans cuisine available for purchase at Swamp Fest.
Participants also have a chance to see the Audubon Zoo's famous exhibits, like white tigers, the Komodo dragon, Jaguar Jungle and the Louisiana Swamp.
Doors open at 10:00 a.m. Audubon Zoo members are admitted free. Membership sign-up is available at the front gate. The Audubon Zoo is located at 6500 Magazine Street.
