As a non-profit, Audubon Nature Institute relies on ticket sales, events, and donations to support our mission of protecting and sharing the wonders of nature. While our doors are closed to help stop the spread of COVID-19, Audubon’s dedicated staff continue to provide outstanding care for our animals, and the parks and facilities you love.

We know this is an uncertain time for everyone, but as a valued part of the Audubon family, we hope you will consider making a special gift to the Audubon Recovery Fund. Your donation will keep our animals thriving. 

Our community is known for our resilience, and this challenge will be no exception. Your generosity will keep our animals happy and healthy while we work to re-open our doors for you.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
