Animal Advocates

When you become an Animal Advocate at Audubon Community Nature Center, you are directly supporting animal care. Not only are you assisting to purchase food and other needed supplies for the in-house live animals, but you are also helping Audubon accomplish their mission. The live animals at Audubon help in educational programs both on and offsite that foster the connection between people to nature.


Animal Advocate packages make great souvenirs or gifts for any occasion.
