The Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center Welcomes the Virtual Return of Teddy Roosevelt

This exciting new app allows visitors to learn more about "the conservation president" and his history on Long Island.

The Digital Tapestry™ initiative offers over 60 unique AR experiences across 11 locations on Long Island. The scope and technical sophistication of these AR experiences are unrivaled in the museum world.

The Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center is proud to announce the release of an innovative augmented reality (AR) experience. The experience allows visitors to interact face-to-face with an AR representation of Theodore Roosevelt. Teddy guides you around the center and speaks of how his adventurous life and the people he encountered inspired his life-long dedication to protecting nature. 

This immersive AR experience is accessible through the TRAR™ mobile app.  It is compatible with both Android and Apple devices.  This exciting experience and its content are free of charge and available to anyone with a mobile phone. 

In the words of Center Director Kathryn D'Amico, “What better way to honor the conservation legacy of President Theodore Roosevelt than to see him 'walk the grounds' of the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary? We have just completed a major renovation of our Wood Thrush Education and Visitor Center, and we welcome visitors to the new center and to enjoy the amazing TRAR app experience. Through the stories told by Teddy Roosevelt himself, we can learn that we all play a role in preserving and conserving the natural world. Audubon does not only connect people with nature but strives for our communities to take purposeful action to protect birds and the places they need, and the places people need!”
