Kids looking at birds

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is a great destination for groups of all ages. Enjoy four miles of outdoor trails in the Sapsucker Woods Sanctuary, plus a variety of interactive exhibits and a large wildlife observation area inside the Visitor Center.

Group visits are traditionally self-guided but if you would like to request a tour with the option of a visit to the Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates please indicate on your reservation request. Tour requests are subject to guide availability and scheduled special events but we do our best to accommodate as many requests as possible!

Please note: We require advance reservations for all groups of 10 or more. For visits in May or June, we recommend making your reservation in February or March.
