If you love birds of prey and have an hour or 2 to spare you really must visit the Audubon Centre. The admission is only $8 and for that you get up close and personal with raptors of all kinds. The staff are all volunteers and their knowledge and dedication to these creatures is amazing. Just wander around the small... More

Enjoy an amazing, up close and personal look at Raptors being cared for at this Audubon Center. Staff inform about care and requirements for possible release of Raptors back into the wild. A terrific short video explains and shows the process the center uses. A covered dock lakeside encourages fishing (you can donate your catch to the center) and picnicking.

The Audubon Center is a small series of exhibits centering around these injured birds of prey. There are probably around 15 large cages with 2-4 birds in each cage. In addition to that, you will find several large birds outside of their cages and on stoops. This is perhaps the best viewing opportunity in the park and the closest I've... More

This is not a high tech, high energy place. But it is a high touch place where kids and adults with an interest in birds of prey will find lots of opportunities to explore that interest and will be able to be up-close-and-personal with many raptors. The price is accessible and the experience excellent.

Wonderful place with amazing volunteers. Extremely well kept and the birds seem very content. The volunteers were so nice and even let my son have a photo with one of the birds up close. You can tell that the volunteers really love their job. Next time we go we will be buying a seasons pass!

If you are into raptors, this is a must visit. Granted it is hit and miss on the number of birds available for viewing but there are always some raptors available. 'Paige' the bald eagle is a treat in herself. The work this center does is awesome. Injured raptors are brought in all the time, especially during breeding season. The... More

Audubon is known for its work to preserve and care for birds and that is very evident at the facility in Maitland. Here injured or ill birds of prey from huge eagles to tiny owl are rescued and cared for until they recover or if recovery is not possible then they make a permanent home for them in this lovely...
