The Audubon Center in Greenwich - the National Audubon Society's 285-acre sanctuary in Greenwich - opened in 1942 as our first environmental education center. Visitors today now enjoy miles of trails, a 21st century education facility, weekly nature programs, and other conservation-themed events, throughout the year.
Audubon Greenwich hosts events throughout the year including: guided hikes, family events, citizen science efforts, birding classes, interesting lectures, and documentary film events. Use the calendar online or sign up for the AGNEWS email service.
Asclepias syriaca (common milkweed) is one of the most valuable wild plants for those following a rewilding path.It offers food, medicine, and relatively strong fibers for those that know how to identify and process this plant.One of its indigenous names is wiphunakson (pronounced weep-hoo-NAHK-sun), which means “feather-shoe” in Passamaquoddy, a very fitting name for this species’ fruit.
