Established in 1923, the Sanctuary is located in Oyster Bay, Long Island. It has the distinction as the first Audubon Songbird Sanctuary in the nation. An original 12 acres were donated by W. Emlen and Christine Roosevelt in memory of their cousin, the late Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States. The Sanctuary’s original purpose was to provide a protected environment for songbirds whose populations were declining due to habitat loss. Today the Sanctuary has grown to 15 acres and is a vibrant resource offering a wide variety of activities, including environmental education, wildlife research, and conservation advocacy.
