About Us

With a century of conservation history, Audubon strives to conserve and restore the habitats we share with all wildlife, focusing on the needs of birds.

The historic home is back open after being closed for a two year renovation. The face lift has included new plaster, paint, electrical, rebuilt chimneys, a new bathroom, new exhibits and more. Come in to see the house Tuesday - Saturday 10am - 4pm, Sunday 1pm - 4pm, but keep in mind the house is closed on Mondays.  Everyday you can hike some of our gorgeous trails that cover around  9 miles that traverse different levels of terrains. A trail map is available at the covered kiosk by the parking lot. 

Visit our 5 live owls outside located next to the museum house. The 3 Eastern Screech Owls and 2 Great Horned Owls will leave you in awe of their beauty. Behind the Cottage house lives our Blue Jay Conrad and also our educational chickens. Take time to visit Conrad who will talk to you and whistle the entire time you visit him. 

Meadows, woods and water make Mill Grove an ideal local destination for birding as all habits are great for different species of birds. Remember your binoculars, your listening ears and sunscreen!  An updated bird blind is located off of the paved trail near the copper mine tower for those who wish to be extra sneaky watching the birds in the adjoining meadow. 

Please enjoy Mill Grove!
