NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Audubon Nature Institute is offering discounts through Oct. 4, on admission for residents of affected communities forced to evacuate because of Hurricane Laura.
Guests visiting from the Parishes of Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, and Jefferson Davis visiting Audubon Zoo will receive a 50 percent discount on adult, child, and senior tickets. The offer is limited to a maximum of four discounted admissions per party. Details for redemption can be found by visiting: audubonnatureinstitute.org/hurricane-laura.
In addition, guests visiting Audubon Zoo and Audubon Aquarium of the Americas from the affected parishes that are Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP) participants enjoy complimentary admission for up to six guests as long as one of the six is an accompanying adult.
SNAP and D-SNAP recipients will be able to make timed ticketed in advance online reservations for up to six guests and will be asked to show a valid government-issued photo ID that matches their SNAP card and D-SNAP proof of benefits, in addition to the generated reservation barcodes at the Zoo and Aquarium front gate for entry.
“We understand what a stressful time this can be and would like to provide the opportunity to our friends and neighbors to enjoy our attractions,” said Audubon Nature Institute President and CEO Ron Forman. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been forced to leave their homes and we hope that a visit to the Zoo or Aquarium can help provide a little solace during this time.”
The offer applies to admission only and is not valid with other discounts or coupons.
Guests are asked to provide proof of residency in communities affected by Hurricane Laura to receive the discount.
