Montezuma Audubon Center Programs and Events

Join the fun with the MAC's nature inspired events!
Coronavirus Response


The health of our visitors, supporters, and staff is of utmost importance to the Montezuma Audubon Center. In an effort to help protect our community, we are following recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as state and local governments. At this time, the Montezuma Audubon Center will be closed through at least March 30, however, our trails will remain open daily from dawn to dusk with appropriate measures to protect the health of our visitors.

Because large gatherings increase the risk of spreading COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps Photography Exhibit that was scheduled for March 21 and 22 in Syracuse, and cancel the Finger Lakes Birding Festival scheduled for March 26-29. Additionally, all programs and meetings that were scheduled at the Center through March 30 are cancelled. We will be posting updates about other programs and specials events on our website as conditions warrant. We will also update our social media platforms with further updates as they arise.   

During this difficult time, nature can provide us with respite and soothing experiences. We encourage you to spend time outdoors, and to be safe and healthy. We are monitoring developments of this situation closely and taking precautions wherever possible. We sincerely apologize for having to postpone and cancel our events in the near-future but we appreciate your understanding.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me at 315.365.3588 x200 or if you have questions.

Thank you for your dedication to Audubon and protecting nature!

Best regards,

Chris Lajewski

Center Director

The Montezuma Audubon Center is a state-owned facility operated through a cooperative agreement between the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the National Audubon Society.

We are dedicated to enhancing the habitat of the Montezuma Wetlands Complex and surrounding Important Bird Areas. The Montezuma Wetlands Complex is Audubon’s first globally significant Important Bird Area.

Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds, other wildlife, and the habitat that supports them. Our national network of community-based nature centers and chapters, scientific and educational programs, and advocacy on behalf of areas sustaining important bird populations, engage millions of people of all ages and backgrounds in conservation.
