Party for the Planet Goes Virtual


Audubon Nature Institute is getting creative with its Party for the Planet series of events while closed due to COVID-19. This year, Audubon will host the events virtually and invite the community to participate while staying safe at home.

Participants are invited to celebrate Earth Day, Endangered Species Day, World Ocean Day, and Pollinator Week, beginning Sunday, April 19.

Virtually follow along with each week’s activities by tuning into Audubon’s Facebook pages to discover imaginative new ways to experience nature, create healthy habitats, and help neighbors, big and small.

“The global pandemic has emphasized the need for all of us around the world to work together to meet challenges and protect life on our planet,” says Regional Customer Service Manager for Entergy New Orleans Toni Green-Brown. “Participation in Party for the Planet’s virtual activities is an entertaining and educational way for families to broaden their understanding of the environment while staying at home. We hope everyone will enjoy this creative way to celebrate and participate in the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.”

The virtual Party for the Planet presented by Entergy series includes:

  • Party for the Planet presented by Entergy: Earth Week: April 19-26
  • Party for the Planet presented by Entergy: Endangered Species Week: May 10-16
  • Party for the Planet presented by Entergy: World Oceans Week: June 7-13
  • Party for the Planet presented by Entergy: Pollination Celebration Week: June 20-27

At the end of the series, participants can download the Party for the Planet Passport available on Audubon’s website. The passport will include a quiz covering topics included in Audubon’s videos covering topics such as pollinators and ocean health. Visitors can bring a copy of their passport to Audubon Zoo once it has reopened to receive special prizes. This date will be announced at a later time. Make sure to follow Audubon’s Facebook pages to participate.
