Audubon Center for Birds of Prey

Welcome to Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, one of Central Florida’s best kept secrets.  Located in the city of Maitland and the Town of Eatonville, this urban environmental Audubon Center focuses on the rescue, medical treatment, rehabilitation and release of Florida’s raptors.  Open to the public, Audubon Center for Birds of Prey offers educational opportunities for all ages.

The Audubon Center for Birds of Prey depends on your gifts to save and rehabilitate Florida's birds of prey. Click here to support the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey. 

For travelers and tourists wanting to experience real Florida, the Center provides an opportunity to view up close and personal Bald Eagles, Ospreys, Kites, Owls and Falcons; some of nature’s top predators.  Visitors can learn about the unique adaptations of raptors, challenges they face and ways you can help. Take a walk to the Center’s gazebo for a short break and to view the Center’s Magic of Flight barn, which houses birds currently under rehabilitation, and the man-made wetland, a natural pollutant reducer that improves the water quality of the lake.  

Additional exhibits highlight conservation in Florida, climate change, and Eagle Eyes on the Environment, a behind the scenes look into rehabilitation. Educational activities include on site and off site programs, special events, volunteer opportunities and Eagle Eyes on the Environment programs.  The Center also hosts Audubon EagleWatch, a statewide citizen science program dedicated to the protection of Bald Eagles and their habitat.  Through this program, many volunteers in the field monitor nesting success of more than 25% of the states nesting population.

We hope you enjoy your time with us.  Our goal is to promote a culture of conservation towards birds of prey and their habitats, and develop future stewards of our natural resources.
