The Audubon Center at Garden Creek was created in 1998. Located at the base of Casper Mountain, the Center is a quiet peace of serenity on nearly 450 acres of open space and just minutes from town. The Audubon Center at Garden Creek includes the Garden Creek riparian zone, unique upland habitats, and a relaxing nature trail. The public can enjoy a variety of birds and other wildlife from the outdoor benches or from the comforts of the visitor center.
