The Louisiana Big Sit! October 12 & 13

Audubon Louisiana, Baton Rouge Audubon Society and Orleans Audubon Society will be hosting four Big Sit! locations across south Louisiana


The Big Sit! is an annual world-wide, zero-mileage, non-competitive, family friendly tailgate party to celebrate the birds of your community. From sunrise to sunset on October 12 and 13, Audubon staff and volunteers will be hosting Big Sit! events at the locations listed below. Please join us at any of these locations to see and learn about your local birds during the peak of fall migration.


You do not have to join us for the entire day, and can come and go as you please. Bring your friends and family to introduce them to the amazing world of birds!


What you will need:

  • Food, snacks, and drinks as desired
  • Binoculars (we will have a few extras to share)
  • Sunscreen
  • Appropriate outdoor footwear
