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.

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.

Visit the programs and events page for information about our birding tours, virtual programs, Scout and school programs, 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!

2021 Audubon Summer Camp Update

We truly appreciate your interest in Montezuma Audubon Center's Summer Camps. Due to financial and staffing limitations, we’ve decided to cancel our summer camp programming. The decision was difficult to make– summer camp is our favorite time of year, too. We’ll be in touch again as we plan other youth and family summer programs.
