Activities For All


Burroughs Audubon offers guided field trips and general meetings (including special programs/speakers). We also offer classes, nature center workdays, and citizen science activities such as the Great Backyard Bird Count and the KC Christmas Bird Count. Best of all, almost all we offer is FREE and for all ages to enjoy, even if you’re not a member! Our nature center and bird sanctuary is located at Lake Jacomo in Fleming Park with a very large natural history library that is free, onsite, for all to use for research, reading, and enjoyment.
