Zumbro Valley Audubon believes connecting with people is our top priority.
Our monthly programs are open to the public and free of charge. Meetings are usually held on the 4th Tuesday of each month at the Quarry Hill Nature Center. Our speakers give presentations about a wide range of subjects (not just birds) - so mark your calendar and come on out - you just might have some fun while learning something new!

Upcoming April programs and events include:
