You can learn about nature and wildlife through countless books, but the only real way to truly experience the natural world is by exploring it in person. The James John Audubon Center at Mill Grove gives visitors the opportunity to do just that, hosting a variety of birds, animals, and insects in their natural habitats.
There are five miles of marked trails on this 175-acre facility for exploring the wilderness around the grounds, and if you look carefully you can spot multiple types of geese, swans, game birds, and more. The Audubon Museum provides background history on Mill Grove itself, and there are children’s educational programs throughout the year on a variety of different topics. If you want to teach your children about the wonders of the natural world, the James John Audubon Center is a great community resource.
The museum at the James John Audubon Center is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. The grounds are open 7 a.m. to dusk Tuesdays through Sundays.
