We have reopened!

As of July 1, 2020, we have resumed our regular business hours of Tuesday - Saturday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and our trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset. Please note, the Montezuma Audubon Center will be closed November 24 - 28, however, our trails will remain open from sunrise to sunset.

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, we will require staff and guests to wear a mask and keep 6 feet apart while inside the Montezuma Audubon Center. To keep staff, volunteers, and our visitors safe, several hand hygiene stations have been created inside the center and we are sanitizing the building throughout the day.

Check our programs and events page for information about the Montezuma tours, Erie Canal birding cruises aboard the Sam Patch, Annual Benefit fundraiser, Moth Nights, volunteer opportunities, and other activities. If you have questions about birding, what to do with a baby bird, or our programs, call us at 315-365-3588 or email

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon!
