  • My wife and I are amateur bird watchers, and we were overwhelmed by the number and species we observed on our first visit. The Audubon Center is a very nice facility with many displays, handouts...

  • Very nice facility. We scheduled a visit for our scout group ahead of time, which included a walk along a paved trail, spotting eagles and waterfowl through a scope, a raptor encounter experience and roasting smores at the fire pit. Everything was handicap accessible. Indoor and outdoor activities. The educators and volunteers were excellent.
  • Great lookout with scopes set up towards Ellis Island. Never been here when there wasn't some bird to be seen from this lookout. Interesting taxidermy birds inside.
