Welcome to the Montezuma Audubon Center, 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.

As of April 15, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website indicates Wayne County is at "high" risk for community transmission of COVID-19. Therefore, masks are required while inside Montezuma Audubon Center. Thank you for your cooperation.
