The Discovery Center

The National Audubon Society (Audubon Pennsylvania) and the Philadelphia Outward Bound School are joining forces to save and sustain a vital part of our natural heritage in a unique partnership. Their missions converge in the East Park section of Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park – just blocks from the neighborhood of Strawberry Mansion – where a century-old abandoned reservoir has become a unique wildlife sanctuary and an important stopover location for birds migrating along the Atlantic Flyway.
