Through policy, education, and on-the-ground conservation and science, Audubon Connecticut is dedicated to protecting precious working land habitats.

With a focus on Connecticut forestland and grassland, we are providing legislators, agencies, municipalities, partners, and private landowners with the knowledge and tools they need to make habitat management decisions that support struggling populations of priority bird species in Connecticut and the Atlantic Flyway. Protect the birds and we protect the Earth.
