Audubon Center for Birds of Prey

For more than a century, Audubon has encouraged people to take care of the places that make Florida special. Using science to guide our work and birdlife to measure ecosystem health, Audubon works to protect land, water, and wildlife. Today, Audubon is Florida’s most influential conservation organization and leads efforts to preserve the Everglades, coastal bird habitats, and other special places. Audubon manages sanctuaries that cover thousands of acres along with two popular nature centers; Audubon’s Center for Birds of Prey and Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.

Audubon House and Center History

Located on the southeast shore of Lake Sybelia, this two story wood frame house sits on 3 acres in Maitland, Florida. Maitland is the historic home of Audubon in Florida; the first meeting was held March 2, 1900 in a Dommerich neighborhood home less than two miles away. This first group of Audubon leaders included N.Y. Governor and later U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, Florida’s Governor, Rollins College’s President, Stetson University’s President, and the editors of the state’s largest newspapers.

The Florida Audubon Society did not have a permanent home until long-time supporter and Florida Audubon board member, Lisa von Borowsky, purchased this Maitland property in 1959. The property was one of the last remaining grove homes along the shores of Lake Sybelia.
