Eagle Creek Park Ornithology Center

The Ornithology Center is a unique nature center that focuses on the study of birds. Although you can ask one of our naturalists about the trails, programs, and natural history of the entire park, we specialize in the birds of the Midwest and birding in Indiana. Visit our building to see beautiful exhibits, relax in our wildlife observation areas, meet our Raptor Ambassadors, and learn about the birds of Eagle Creek Park.

People of all ages and abilities can find bird watching inspiring and educational, often sparking the pursuit of environmental and conservation interests. Eagle Creek Park is designated as an Audubon Important Bird Area and is part of the Indiana Birding Trail. More than 280 of the 419 bird species that can be seen in Indiana have been recorded visiting the park. Whether you are a new hobbyist or a life-long birder, visit the Ornithology Center before your next birding adventure! Go to indyparks.org to find a list of our seasonal public programs and special events. In addition, both park nature centers offer environmental education field trips and private programming for schools, scouts, families, teachers, and other groups.
