Audubon Society Wildlife Pond

6748993737_d7d870a41d_bWelcome to a GREAT FREE family attraction for those who love the outdoors and nature! This is the wonderful Florida Keys Audubon Society Wildlife Pond.

Escape the crowds of Key West’s Duval Street and beaches with a super less-traveled path to a site seen by few. You may see 2 or 3 other people during your entire visit… I said maybe! 🙂 This secluded off-road wildlife pond is full of dozens of species of birds, iguanas, turtles, fish, pelicans and many other of nature’s incredible creatures. Don’t miss seeing all of the local entertainment from the observation deck pictured here so bring your binoculars, camera & zoom lens!

The National Audubon Society is a non-profit, environmental organization dedicated to conservation. Audubon is one of the oldest such organizations in the world founded in 1905 and uses science & education to advance its mission. Named in honor of John James Audubon, American ornithologist and naturalist who painted and cataloged the birds of North America in his famous book Birds of America in 1827.

You can find this great getaway attraction within the Wildlife Center at 1801 White Street beside the Key’s largest bocce ball courts and across from the more famous White Street Pier.
