The John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove stands in the historic first U.S. home of John James Audubon. The museum features a unique combination of nature, art, and history and houses all of Audubon’s major works including “Birds of America”. The land surrounding the museum has been designated as a wildlife sanctuary and features five miles of trails where visitors may encounter some of the 175 species of birds and 400 species of plants that have been identified there. The John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove is a National Audubon Society and Pennsylvania Audubon Education Center and serves as the headquarters of the Valley Forge Audubon Society.
