The Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center aims to “connect people with nature” while encouraging environmental responsibility and duty through natural science programs. The Center was established in 1923 in Oyster Bay as the nation’s first Audubon Songbird Sanctuary. Twelve acres of land were donated by Teddy Roosevelt’s cousins in his memory to the Audubon Society whose original goal was to give a protected home to songbirds who’s population was dwindling due to the loss of the their habitats. Today the Society provides a variety of activities in high-quality and effective environmental education, wildlife research and conservation advocacy using hands-on, experimental methods.
