There's always a lot going on at our center - indoor and outdoor educational opportunities, walking, birding, workshops and more.
The Little Rock Audubon Center is part of the National Audubon Society's network of conservation action centers. It is the Arkansas headquarters for Audubon Delta, a regional office of National Audubon. Located in the historic black community of Granite Mountain, the Center provides a network of trails for the public. It serves as an environmental education hub and demonstration site for Audubon's on-the-ground habitat management.
The Center hosts field trips for central Arkansas K-12 students and summer internship opportunities for teens. Additional enrichment programming focuses on the needs of underserved, low-income communities in Little Rock. Audubon staff now educate nearly 3,000 K-12 students, families, and adults each year at the Center, classrooms, and natural sites throughout the state. Learn more about our field trip opportunities here (link to education page).
The Center showcases Audubon's commitment to creating bird-friendly communities through native plant landscaping, habitat restoration, and advocacy workshops. The facility is 100% solar-powered and provides free EV charger access. Four miles of trails wind through 400 acres of diverse habitat, including globally rare nepheline syenite glades and Gillam Park's upland and bottomland hardwood forest, all within minutes of downtown Little Rock.
Annual events include Spring and Fall Native Plant Sales, the BirdAR Birdathon, A Swift Night Out, and the Christmas Bird Count.
The Center is open Monday-Friday, 9 am-4:30 pm. Trails are open from sunrise to sunset, seven days a week. Contact us at 501-244-2229 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
