PLEASE NOTE: NYC Audubon has opted to delay scheduling in-person summer and early fall programs due to uncertainty about when such gatherings will again be possible. As a result, we do not have a current date to open registration for summer programs. We are following governmental guidance during this dynamic and changing crisis—and the safety of our members, staff, and naturalist guides is our top priority.
