Sensory Friendly Activities

A partnership with the Louisiana Children's Museum and the Audubon Nature Institute to host Sensory Friendly Sundays. This event allows children with disabilities and their families the opportunity to experience the museum in a more comfortable and accepting setting. Before the normal hours of the Audubon Zoo, children with disabilities are able to enjoy activities in the Education Complex. The environment is open and calming for children. Student volunteers from Louisiana State University Health-New Orleans collaborate with the Louisiana Children's Museum and Audubon Nature Institute to develop a unique theme and create a variety of activities which facilitate different motor, sensory and cognitive skills.
