Visit the Montezuma Audubon Center website for up-to-date events and information.


The Montezuma Audubon Center (MAC) is about one mile north of Savannah. The Center is sited immediately adjacent to two reclaimed marshes, open meadows, upland forest, seasonally flooded forest and a natural lake. The location makes possible education programs in a variety of habitats all within a short walk from the center building.

The MAC is Audubon New York’s first education facility in central New York, an important part of the network of Audubon Centers, and a new resource for educating residents and tourists about one of New York’s greatest wildlife resources.
