NYC Audubon educates and connects New Yorkers of all ages with nature in the city through fun and informative festivals, providing participants with valuable opportunities to learn about wild birds and their habitats. We hold multiple festivals throughout the year at Jamaica Bay and Governors Island that feature engaging programs and activities fun for the whole family. All festivals are free and open to the public.
