This Audubon is a great way to get outdoors and show our children why conservation and caring for our environment is so important. Brought cub scouts out years ago, and they completely enjoyed it.

Closed the day after thanksgiving. Why? No black Friday for birding. Maybe we'll try again tomorrow, this is crazy.

A quiet place to go for nature hikes. Wear comfortable shoes and sun protection. Easy walking pathways. Check the Center for special events.
