Three reasons to visit John James Audubon State Park.
1John James Audubon, the famous naturalist and painter, ran a general store in Henderson, Kentucky, in 1810. Today, Audubon Museum stands within the park to commemorate his life. Check out the displays of some of his original paintings and prints.
2Twenty warbler species fill the treetops with cheery songs in spring and summer. There’s even a hiking trail at the park named for them—warbler Road. Expect to see species such as yellow-throated, Kentucky, prothonotary and northern parula.
3Stroll along the boardwalk to explore some of the 649 acres of gorgeous Audubon Wetlands. The boardwalk trail is easily accessible to visitors with limited mobility. When you visit, watch for the active bald eagle nest and heron rookery.
John James Audubon is known for detailed watercolors, like this tundra swan.
