Nature in the City

Important Notice Regarding COVID-19

As of March 17th, Tracy Aviary is closed to visitors and all education programs through the end of the month are canceled. This was a tough decision for us to make because we know our programs are a much-needed services for you and your family. However, our decision was made based on state and federal recommendations and is for the safety of our participants and staff. If you have already registered for a free Nature in the City program, you will receive an email noting its cancellation. Tracy Aviary is committed to keeping our audience engaged and we encourage you to keep checking our website and social media channels for fun, educational activities. At this time, we also want to be of service to you and your family. If your child needs help with online coursework or if you would like us to make available certain education activities (including photos, videos, or hands-on activities), please reach out to our Director of Education, Michelle, at . We also have a list of community resources should your family need them.
