NYC Audubon offers hundreds of local bird outings and classes annually. Explore one of the City’s parks with an expert guide to marvel at the hundreds of species of birds that frequent our urban landscape. Or enhance your bird knowledge and birding skills with one of our virtual or in-person classes. In addition to outings and classes, NYC Audubon offers seasonal festivals, engaging lectures and talks, and family-friendly programs at our nature center on Governors Island. You can also view all programs on the All Events Calendar.
