New York City Audubon
Join New York City Audubon once again at their seasonal residence on Governors Island! This year’s nature center will feature displays on conservation, a children’s room with books and activities, bird-inspired artwork and studio space showcasing artists creating work inspired by Governors Island and its variety of avian residents. Guests can borrow binoculars and participate in one of their free guided bird walks, or strike out on their own to discover the bright and bustling bird life all over the island. Visit and learn all about the feathery friends who share our urban environment and what we can do to help them out. Located in House 17 in Nolan Park.
