Gulf of Mexico Exhibit

I know you don’t generally think of recycling when you’re planning your trip to Audubon Aquarium.  You probably think of sharks, jellies, our massive white alligator and, of course, finding that “Nemo” fish!  We’ll, we’re about to change that!  You see Audubon Nature Institute is in the biz of conservation, so we’re always dreaming up ways of saving nature and preserving her beauty.  So we’re hosting activities for America Recycles Day, a national event organized by Keep America Beautiful.  Our outstanding Education Department will offer you a variety of hands-on activities to raise awareness about recycling and its benefits. Here’s the scoop: The Recycling Pledge Activity will be at the Caribbean Exhibit.  The Recycling Sorting Race and Sign up to Reduce Unwanted Mail will be stationed at the Amazon Exhibit.  That’s worth the price of admission alone! At the Living in Water Gallery, learn how much energy recycling saves and best of all, there will be a Worm Composting Demonstration at the Mississippi Gallery.  The kids will just get a kick out of that!  We know you love going to Audubon Aquarium to see all the sea creatures and make family memories, and now you can learn how you can help preserve planet Earth! Join us and learn something new during America Recycles Day from 10 am – 4:30 pm on Saturday, November 17.

By the way, all of our attractions will be open on Monday, November 19.  So bring all of your Thanksgiving guests on over for a visit!  Now, we are closed on Thanksgiving Day, of course.
