This segment from the June 25, 1982, episode of “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features a report on two bills that aim to bring Audubon Park, Audubon Zoo and City Park in New Orleans under the jurisdiction of the Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism so that these parks qualify for state funding through the capital outlay budget. This report touches on the potential effect of the bills on the 15-year, $100 million master plan of the Office of State Parks, which has been in effect since 1975. Host: Beth George
