We've seen the sign for this before but didn't go. We went because a friend recommended it and we had really missed out by not going before. It's a bit off the beaten path but well signposted and well worth a visit. Doesn't cost a lot and discounts for over 65 and children, it's only a small place but you... More

Amazing work they do to help birds of prey in Central Florida. And the birds they have are majestic (they are birds that couldn't survive in the wild, and so they take care of them there). The kids will really LOVE it!

We stop by the Audubon Center every few years with the kids. It's a great place to spend a couple of hours and check out the birds that are being helped.

If you love birds,especially raptors, well this certainly the place for you. It is a small center with a variety of different species who have been kept there due to circumstances in which they cannot be released to the wild, and they are gorgeous, and cute. There is also a small deck to view onto the marshlands where you can... More

The Center is located on some very prime real estate. There is a lake with a gazebo and the birds are in enclosures that make you think you are in a forest. You want to take a tour because it is very educational and fun. Course the Eagles catch everyone's attention. What incredible birds of prety they are. The Center... More

If you're interested in raptors, this is the place to visit when you're in Florida. There is a variety of birds of prey to observe, and lots of interesting information to read along your walk by a scenic lake/wetland. The staff member who welcomed us was very warm and informative. I was happy to see the great work they do... More

Get away from the theme parks and get a real inside look at how Audubon manages exotic animals and how they reintroduce them into the wild.

This is an excellent facility for injured or any birds of prey that cannot make it in the wild. Every effort is made to help the bird recover so that the birds can return to the wild. For birds that cannot return to their natural habitat the center becomes their home. Care is provided by trained staff and volunteers using... More

Friendly and informative staff. Birds are very well cared for. Only birds that are NOT able to be released back into the wild are on exhibit. Birds that are being cared for with the intent of being released are not on exhibit so as not to habituate them to people. Easy walking trails outside - no steep grades. Interesting videos... More

The center is well planned and presented. The birds have decent size enclosures with shade and fauna. It is all outdoors - so plan for the weather. The majority of the space is shaded. There is a nice pavilion, so you could bring a picnic if you wanted. Keep in mind that it is a working facility - so the... More
