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.
In a time when so many things are closed, nature is always open. I long ago learned that time outside was essential for me to be happy. In college, I would take my notes and study outside. When I worked in a city, my lunch breaks would be wanderings through the downtown parks with Chinese takeout. For me, getting outside is important if I want to stay grounded, focused and happy. I am not the only one.
Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) is awarding cash prizes to winners of its 2020 Nature Photography Contest.
Animals and plants understand that the world is an unpredictable place. There are predators. There is weather. There are warm years, dry spells, and cold snaps. There is disease, disaster, and competition.
