Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium is seeking to fill open volunteer positions within our Bug Ambassador program. This is ongoing.
Bug Ambassadors serve as the link between the animals that we house at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium and the thousands of guests that visit our facility each year. Bug Ambassadors interpret live animal exhibits, engage visitors in learning, and assist staff with live animal presentations.
Bug Ambassadors must be 16 years of age or older, complete the training course, and commit to one weekly shift for one year. A contribution of $30.00 helps cover costs of training materials and uniforms.

The great American illustrators of the 20th century captured American history unlike any artist before them, and the Saturday Evening Post carried their timeless images to millions of Americans, into their hearts and homes. Iconic artists such as Norman Rockwell, J.C. Leyendecker, Stevan Dohanos, George Hughes, and Amos Sewell created compelling scenes of everyday life that come together to forge a portrait of a country and its people, shaped by periods of peace and war, moments of economic despair and of great societal change. Join us as we explore the story of America as told through over 40 original works, shown alongside their Saturday Evening Post covers, in America, Illustrated: Six Decades of the Saturday Evening Post.
This class meets every Sunday from 5-6:15 pm
Black and Brown Bodies in Motion (BBM), is a collaboration with the Ohm Well’s Valerie McMillan and Wildseeds: The New Orleans Octavia Butler Emergent Strategy Collective.

BBM is a direct response to the marginalization and or invisibility of yogis of color in traditional yoga studios and classes.

Directed by the Big Easy Award-winning team of Dennis Monn and Musical Director Harry Mayronne, "Happy End", Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s follow-up to "The Threepenny Opera", opens at the Allways Lounge on December 10. It is a variation on the classic, time-worn tale of the battle between good and evil, set in rough-and-tumble 1919 Chicago. Dennis Monn and Harry Mayronne, the creative team behind "The Threepenny Opera" in 2010, team up again to breathe new life into this much neglected Brecht/Weill collaboration. Joining Mayronne to perform the musical score is the popular musical group The Salt Wives. In the cast are Levy Easterly, Pandora Gastelum, Ratty Scurvics, Chris Wecklein, Elyse Manning, Owen Ever, Nicole Gruter, Renee Anderson, Marygoround, & Kenneth Woo.
