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.
Looking to beautify your garden had help wildlife too? We are happy to offer seasonal opportunities to get beautiful native plants grown right here on Long Island by Glover Perennials.
Our next plant sale will take place in Fall 2021. Check back here for more information as the fall season approaches.

2021 Audubon Summer Camp is ON! We are getting our ducks in a row to welcome back our campers for in-person sessions (COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions permitting). We can’t wait to see our friends again in-person and are looking forward to a great summer.
Join us JULY 12 - SEPTEMBER 2, 2021, MONDAY - THURSDAY 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
We are taking small groups, so there is very limited availability this summer. Don't delay and register today!
We have many volunteer opportunities at Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center. From helping with our education programs to trail work and planting native gardens, there are many ways to get involved and help out at the sanctuary.
