Audubon of Martin County is based at the Clifton Possum Long Nature Preserve. The Audubon office houses an extensive natural history library, meeting room, bird-art and a collection of taxidermy specimens. The preserve lies behind the Audubon House and includes almost 5-acres of urban forest that are slowly being rehabilitated after the ravages of hurricanes in 2004 and 2005. In 2010, we completed construction of a Storm-water Retrofit project, which added a pond and sloughs carefully engineered to mimic the wet/dry cycles of natural wetlands. These areas are already attracting wading birds, Osprey, migrating birds and ducks.
If you haven't enjoyed this green sanctuary we invite you to stop by, walk the trails, enjoy the butterfly garden, have a picnic or just spend a quiet hour looking for the many birds who stop by for food and rest. The grounds are open to the public at no charge every day from dawn to dusk.
