Tips from foursquare
Opened in 2002, the Audubon Center is housed in the landmarked 1905 Boathouse, an architectural masterpiece based on the design of a 16th-century Venetian Library.
Refreshments sold here- water, soda, Thai iced tea, cookies, muffins. Restrooms here, also.

If you explore far enough, you will find the boat house. It's been restored, but that doesn't mean there are really any boats these days. Still, it's a great place for photos and a snack if you fancy.
