Updates: Audubon Connecticut Center and Chapter Events, Trails, Birds

Being outside in nature can help lift your spirits during challenging times.

COVID-19 Updates and Much-Needed Distractions Below!

Piping Plovers, Osprey, Barn Swallows, Kildeer, and more are being spotted across our state. The world may be standing still, but birds still need our help to thrive, and right now, we need them too.

Here are some ways you can stay socially distant while safely enjoying the outdoors this spring.

Pass the Time on a Trail

As of today, all trails at Audubon centers in Connecticut remain OPEN. We hope you'll come visit!

Bent of the River Audubon Center: Trails Open | Center closed through at least April 30

Sharon Audubon Center: Trails Open | Center closed through at least April 30, rehab accepting patients via appointment only, with outdoor drop-off.

Watch Live Birds, From Indoors

We recognize that some people may be unable, or nervous, to explore the outdoors right now. So we're bringing the birds to you!
