Audubon Sharon consists of the Audubon Sharon Center and Emily Winthrop Miles Wildlife Sanctuary, and has been connecting people with nature since its founding in 1961. The Audubon Sharon Center features 1,147 acres of primarily forestland. It includes eleven miles of trails and two ponds. The main building houses a small hands-on natural history museum, the Audubon Nature Store, and the children's Adventure Center. The immediate grounds include a raptor aviary with live birds of prey, the Herb Garden (maintained by the Millbrook Garden Club), the Eleanor Loft Bird and Butterfly Garden, and a working sugarhouse (formerly an ice house).
The center is Audubon Sharon's community nature center, where the majority of the programs and events are held. The Audubon Sharon Center runs a Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic for injured and orphaned wildlife, and naturalists are on duty to answer questions and interface with the public.
