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.
For more information visit our website at www.auduboninstitute.org/volunteers or by calling 504-587-2116.
Every Monday, 6: 00 p.m., except holidays.
The New Orleans Toastmasters Club meet each week to assist its members with overcoming the fear of public speaking. If you are looking to improve or show-off your public speaking skills, this is a the group for you. At Toastmasters you will gain confidence and the skills needed to deliver a well organized speech to small or large audiences. All are welcome to visit and settle in with a group of warm, welcoming individuals. This is a move-at-your-pace program. Although we love children and pets, this is an adult only event.
