Take a tasty trip around the world all from the confines of the Audubon Zoo — the spot for three evenings of grown-up fun, information and fermentation.
Zoo educators will be discussing the animals and culture of three distinct world habitats with wine and cheese.
“The wine and cheese tours are an opportunity for adults to learn more about the animals and cultures of the various exhibits,” said Brenda Walkenhorst, director of education projects for the Audubon Institute. “Guests will mingle with zoo educators, and each other, over wine and cheeses and then walk through the exhibit area and hear stories about the animals, culture of the region and conservation issues and success in those same ecosystems.”
Asia is the first stop Thursday, Oct. 22; the Louisiana Swamp is Nov. 12; and the Jaguar Jungle is Dec. 17. The happenings are 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“It is a unique opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, adult company and beverages while getting personal stories of the Audubon Zoo collection,” Walkenhorst said.
The zoo is located at 6500 Magazine St., New Orleans. Admission for the wine and cheese will be $35, $25 for Audubon members.
