Audubon Connecticut's nature education centers in Southbury, Greenwich, and Sharon, Connecticut—serve as gateways to the great outdoors. Visitors are invited to explore our walking trails, connect with nature, and take part in our many learning opportunities and programs about birds, other wildlife, and the natural world.
Located at Audubon nature sanctuaries, our centers are part of a broad network of critical habitats for a host of birds and other wildlife species as well as peaceful respites for people. Our centers serve as community hubs for education, conservation, and engagement with nature.

Audubon’s network of sanctuaries includes our three centers and encompasses 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. 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.

With more than 17,000 Audubon Connecticut 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.
Our chapters enable Audubon members and others to meet and share an appreciation of their common interests. They create a culture of conservation in local communities through education and advocacy, focusing on the conservation of birds, other wildlife, and important habitats.
