| The John James Audubon Center|
| At the John James Audubon Center, we strive to create fun and engaging programs for the public, and to provide a network of hope to our friends and guests. Even though the building is closed, we have been working on many things to help out during these trying times.|
As many of you know, the many trails on the Mill Grove preserve remain open! We have about 5 miles of unpaved, natural hiking trails for you to explore and experience nature up-close. Additionally, we have a paved path known as the Audubon Loop that provides a relaxing journey around the perimeter of our site. Getting outside and experiencing some sun and nature is a great way to stay active and healthy – just make sure you are maintaining a safe 6 foot minimal distance, and wearing a mask while doing it!
Guided Bird Walks
8:00 am – 10:00 am
Join our expert bird walk leaders as we explore the grounds of the center looking for resident and migrating birds. Please meet in the parking lot. Extra binoculars are provided and no RSVP needed.
