Protecting birds and the places they need

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. www.audubon.org
Based on CDC guidance, the National Audubon Society will use the COVID Tracker that evaluates “Level Community Transmission” at the county level. As of August 2, 2021, Wayne County has “substantial” COVID transmission, therefore, masks are required inside the Montezuma Audubon Center for everyone including staff, guests, and volunteers, regardless of their vaccination status.
If you do not have a mask, please ask our staff or volunteers for one.
Thank you for your cooperation.
