The connection begins with you.

Audubon Community Nature Center builds and nurtures connections between people and nature by providing positive outdoor experiences, opportunities to learn about and understand the natural world, and knowledge to act in environmentally responsible ways.

Many of the events, programs and workshops at ACNC contain an outdoor component. Audubon believes that experiencing the natural world first hand is key in developing a connection to the planet. Check out what is happening at Audubon.

Nature affects us. We affect nature. Many of ACNC’s programs help to understand the components of natural ecosystems and how people fit into and impact the systems. Learn more about scheduling educational programs through Audubon.


Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something. Learn how your actions impact the planet and find simple ways to increase your positive impacts through volunteering. Find your place at Audubon Community Nature Center.
