Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary & Audubon Center

A visit to the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary will give students hands-on understanding of the natural systems around them, and of the importance of conservation. They can explore forests, Long Island Sound, or even their own backyards while learning about ecology, habitats, adaptations, birds, and endangered species. Older classes can schedule the Sea to Shore Science Lab, a multi-day program that includes classroom learning and a visit to a shorebird nesting site, where students can help with seine netting, water quality testing, and sampling. The Sanctuary is happy to help scouts with badges and with Eagle Scout service projects.
