Centers, Sanctuaries, & Chapters

Audubon’s three centers and network of sanctuaries include more than 4,600 acres of land that Audubon owns and manages in Connecticut. These special places provide opportunities for on-site, outdoor education programs, trails for birdwatching or nature walks, and places where communities can gather to learn, share knowledge, and take action on behalf of birds and other wildlife. We have nature education centers in Southbury, Greenwich, and Sharon, and sanctuaries across the state, including the Salt Meadows Sanctuary in Guilford.

With more than 17,000 members, five active Audubon Society chapters serving towns throughout Connecticut, and an army of more than 2,000 volunteers, Audubon’s impact is recognized across Connecticut. Whether we are putting up nesting poles for Osprey, monitoring songbird and raptor populations, or advocating for more bird-friendly public policies, the Audubon community is a powerful network for birds, wildlife, and people.

Audubon centers and chapters serve as hubs for local and regional conservation action and nature education, and our sanctuaries provide critical habitat to a host of birds and other wildlife, as well as a peaceful respite to human visitors. Most of our properties are open to the public, and we welcome you to visit our centers and hike or bird our sanctuary trails. Please select from the list below for more information.
