Evergreen Audubon now has an extension of the Nature Center adjacent to Alderfer/Three Sisters Park. We are on Buffalo Park Road between Evergreen High School and the first parking lot for Alderfer/Three Sisters Park. This wonderful location has classrooms and access to 15 miles of trails for the many educational programs we offer. Monthly Chapter Meetings are located here the first Thursday of every month. This is the primary location for staff as well so stop by to visit. Via I-70: Take I-70 to the Evergreen exit (#252 westbound; #251 eastbound).

Turn right onto 73 and proceed for a 0.5 mile to the first stoplight. Turn right onto Buffalo Park Road and continue for 1 mile. Our facility is on the right hand side of the road and you will see a sign that says Basecamp at the top and our name listed below. Parking is behind the building.
