Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium seeking Bug Ambassador Volunteers

DATE
Fri, Mar 1, 2013
through Tue, Mar 1, 2016
DETAILS

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.

Watch the Sync Up conference live - streaming in real-time video and audio at WWOZ.org, starting at 10 a.m. CST every day of the conference.

The Sync Up Conference, held during Jazz Fest at NOMA in City Park, is New Orleans’ top forum for entertainment industry leaders, covering music, film and digital media from the perspective of independent artists. Sync Up is free but requires registration.

Sync Up 2013 boasts another stellar cast of entertainment industry leaders. It also includes a second annual showcase for the Louisiana independent film industry, Sync Up Cinema, produced in partnership with the New Orleans Video Access Center and the New Orleans Film Society.

Sync Up Cinema admission is also free but no advance registration is needed. The screenings and panel discussions take place the Monday-Wednesday between Jazz Fest weekends (April 29-May 1).

We're looking forward to a pair of “teaser” screenings: Bayou Maharajah, Lily Keber’s documentary about pianist James Booker (Tuesday, April 30) and A Taste of Heaven, Leo Sacks’ documentary about gospel singer Raymond Myles, and a conversation with Sacks and Davell Crawford (Wednesday, May 1).
