The Audubon Nature Institute strives to celebrate the wonders of nature by providing a fun venue for family entertainment and educating the community on how to be environmental guardians.  

On May 6, the Institute will be hosting its annual “Whitney Zoo-To-Do” gala to support the restoration of Audubon Zoo’s Tropical Bird House. The black-tie gala will feature food and drink from New Orleans’ finest restaurants, live music, a silent auction and a Lexus vehicle raffle.

Gary Lorio, Whitney Bank executive vice-president; Mel Lagarde, president of Hospital Corporation of America; Celeste Eustis, “Zoo-To-Do for Kids” Gala Chair (which took place April 29); Caroline Calhoun, “Whitney Zoo-To-Do” Gala Chair; and Ron Forman, president and CEO of Audubon Nature Institute; all pictured on our cover, and numerous volunteers and staff have worked to make this a memorable event.

For more information on the Audubon Nature Institute and all that it does, to support the museums and parks and to purchase tickets, call 861-6160 or visit AudubonNatureInstitute.org/ztd.
