The National Audubon Society has announced the opening of its new Audubon Center at Riverlands. The Center held its grand opening on October 14 with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The new Audubon Center is located on property of the United States Army Corps of Engineers’ Riverlands Migratory Birds Sanctuary.
“The Audubon Center’s perfect location near the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers will provide tremendous opportunities for education, conservation, and recreation for the public,” Dr. Patricia Hagen, executive director of the Audubon Center at Riverlands said. “From here, visitors can learn about the natural environment and wildlife around them, then go out and reconnect in the Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary.”
