Friends of Joe W. Brown Park & Louisiana Nature Center was established in 2010 as a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the beauty, cleanliness, safety and overall quality of life of the Joe W. Brown Memorial Park, the Audubon Institute & Louisiana Nature Center, and the surrounding areas.

The desire to establish Friends of Joe W. Brown Park & Louisiana Nature Center came about as a result of recognizing the need for partnering with the community to preserve and conserve the precious natural resources that exit in Eastern New Orleans. The historic Greenhouse at the Nature Center is just one of those resources.

EASTERN NEW ORLEANS LANDMARKS

The 135-acre Park and 86-acre Nature Center currently serve a population of approximately 77,000 residents of Eastern New Orleans, an area that was decimated by levee failure associated with Hurricane Katrina, resulting in inundation by as much as seven feet of brackish flood water that sat for weeks. As a result, thousands of trees were destroyed and still need to be replaced.

Joe W. Brown Memorial Park is located in the economic center of Eastern New Orleans, and provides a wide range of community and family activities, including walking, bike riding, and tennis. It contains an activities center, in-door heated pool, ball fields, picnic shelters, and play equipment.

Eastern New Orleans is home to several schools and summer camps that are in need of outdoor educational and recreational activities. Prior to Hurricane Katrina, the Audubon Louisiana Nature Center accommodated school children who received valuable exposure to biological and zoological sciences.
