Welcome to the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center—a home for discovery and exploration. Managed by Audubon New York, the center was established in 1923 as the country’s first National Audubon Society songbird sanctuary. Theodore Roosevelt’s gravesite sits at the edge of the sanctuary property. Our 14 acres boast extensive native plant demonstration gardens, several small ponds, a mile of hiking trails, and our famous Bessie Potter Vonnoh fountain sculpture.
