COVID-19 Update

As the St. Louis region works collectively to limit the spread of COVID-19, the Audubon Center at Riverlands is closed until further notice.

The Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary, trails and outdoor amenities will remain open. If you are not sick or in quarantine please take some time to go outside, get some fresh air and see some birds—it is the beginning of migration season after all. If you are going with a group, please remember to bring hand sanitizer, practice safe social distancing of 6-10 ft and do NOT share binoculars or spotting scopes.

To aid in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, we ask that you stay at home when sick, exercise frequent hand washing, cover coughs and sneezes wherever you are and practice safe social distancing.
