The Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary & Audubon Center offers nature and conservation-themed day programs during public school vacations. Each day, your child explores a different theme under the supervision of professional staff.
Sanctuary Adventures Programs introduce your child to the wonders that await them in the natural world. Educators instruct your child through nature hikes, games, crafts, stories and live animal presentations, all based around an exciting daily theme. Lessons are designed to incorporate hands-on learning, while encouraging exploration, observation and problem solving skills.
Each Sanctuary Adventure Programs is sure to include: Safe adventures, hands-on exploration, small group sizes, crafts, nature games, hikes, live animal encounters and more!
Bird research and habitat restoration are also important parts of our mission. The Center is involved with a number of projects that protect birds and their essential habitats. Programs include songbird banding, held monthly at the Sanctuary; Project Feederwatch, available on weekends through the winter; and other seasonal citizen science projects.
Many visitors to the Sanctuary also visit Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, the former home of Theodore Roosevelt. Located only a mile away, Sagamore Hill is open Wednesday through Sunday, from 9 am – 4 pm. To learn more about Sagamore Hill, please visit their website.
