Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in the San Antonio area, Mitchell Lake Audubon Center will be closed through July 30. A date to reopen has not been set.

As a science-based conservation organization, we are using the best science available, along with input from the National Audubon Society and local partners, to determine the safest way to reopen without putting our staff, visitors, and volunteers at risk. We will continue to update this area with information as it becomes available. Thank you.
