The Montezuma Audubon Center (MAC) is a state-owned facility operated through a cooperative agreement between the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and the National Audubon Society.  Managed by Audubon New York, the MAC houses a large exhibit area, classroom, nature store, office area, auditorium, and a meeting room. On its 198 acres, there are five different types of habitat, two restored freshwater marshes, two-miles of hiking trails, and an all-access observation platform.

The MAC is located in the Northern Montezuma State Wildlife Management Area in Savannah and provides a gateway to the Montezuma Wetlands Complex and National Wildlife Refuge.  Montezuma provides resting, feeding, and nesting habitat for waterfowl and other migratory birds.  Montezuma is situated in the middle of one of the most active flight lanes in the Atlantic Flyway.  Through strategic partnerships, Audubon reintroduces audiences of all ages to nature with a diverse range of programs that highlight the critical importance of habitats focusing on wetland ecology, migration, and habitat restoration and improvements.

Audubon New York operates the center in partnership with the State Department of Environmental Conservation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Ducks Unlimited, The Nature Conservancy, and Pheasants Forever in the planning of educational and interpretative programs and exhibits.
