February is filled with fun!

Black History, Hornets and Praise

I just heard some great news!  Have you heard about this? Well, rumor has it that this February we’ll have some warmer weather coming our way. As a matter of fact, I heard this from some trusted local weather experts. I cannot be more excited. I am eagerly making plans for outdoor activities and will take full advantage of the cool days ahead. All month long is Black History Month and there will be lots of events and activities all over the city, but pay attention because this February Audubon Nature Institute is where you want to start your planning. We’ve got lots going on at all of our attractions. At Audubon Aquarium of the Americas put on your safari gear and search for the answers in our scavenger hunt. We’ll have clues on the history of an African American zoologist, an environmentalist and a chemist. You’ll want to study up on your Black History because you’ll have a chance to win a FREE Family membership! Yes, a whole year FREE for your family to visit and get all the member specials. How great is that?! We’ve got two events that you’ll want to attend at Audubon Zoo. One event coming up will be a toe tapping, hand clapping live singing event. It’s Get Yah Praise On Saturday, February 19th. A little birdie told me, actually it was a bee, that we are having a dribble, dunk, slam jam event at the zoo called… Hornets Day at Audubon Zoo on Sunday, February 13! For the second year we’ll host the best interactive basketball event with your New Orleans Hornets. We’ll have games and prizes for everyone. We’ll even have some players out to sign autographs and meet and greet all the fans. Enjoy performances by the Honeybees, Stingers and the Hornets Drumline. The kids will love the face painters, obstacle course and Air Hugo! The Buzz patrol will be in full effect. I’ve only given you a small sneak peak at what’s going on this month at Audubon. Also, this month be on the lookout for special discount coupons. Keep an eye open and your ears in tune. We’ll have discount coupons coming your way that you will want to take advantage of. Check for more offers, events and activities, online, on Facebook and stay up to the minute with info on Twitter! I am so excited about February come and visit us we’d love to see you!
