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.

Every Monday from 7-8PM
The New Orleans Kinderchor, the New Orleans German-American Children's Chorus, is a music program celebrating German culture in the vibrant city of New Orleans, with a home at the Deutsches Haus. We meet every Monday evening from 7-8PM and offer a chance to learn traditional seasonal and holiday German children's songs, including translation, meaning, history, pronunciation and singing along with friends. Each season offers a new selection of music, with seasonal blocks from November-January, February-April, May-July and August-October, including seasonal performances. Membership is open and there is no fee to join and no need to have previous experience in singing or German - just bring your curiosity and spirit and contribute your unique voice to our chorus :)

In addition to voice, percussion, and music theory study, a keyboard, guitar and electric bass are available upon request to musicians with at least one year of prior experience. Students of woodwind, brass, or string instruments are invited to bring them to the rehearsals as well.
