Prospect Park Audubon Center, Free

  • Winter in the Wild, 1–3 pm: Bundle up and find out what your favorite Park animals are up to this winter. Join Alliance educators to discover the winter survival strategies of animals that live in Prospect Park. Enjoy nature games, naturalist-led tours, and more!
  • Great Backyard Bird Count, 2–3 pm: Where are winter finches and other visiting species? Help Alliance naturalists track North American bird populations; see if late winter movements of songbirds and waterfowl are as far north as they were last year, and if winter weather influenced the region’s bird populations.
  • Animal Encounter, 3–4 pm: Curious as to how “Snappy” the turtle got her name? Want to watch the snake gobble up a mouse? Join Alliance naturalists to meet the animals in the Audubon Center’s collection. Learn what it takes to care for these amazing creatures and assist in an actual feeding.
