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. Grounding our roots in conservation, Maitland hosted the first Florida Audubon Society meeting in March 1900 to save Florida's imperiled wading birds. Today, Audubon Center for Birds of Prey carries on that mission of protecting and saving Florida’s birds of prey. We invite you to experience our unique location, tucked along Lake Sybelia, just outside Orlando. Visitors can learn about the unique adaptations of raptors, challenges they face and the many ways to get involved with helping birds of prey and the important habitats and resources they depend on.
