The Audubon Greenwich mission is to engage and educate people to conserve, restore, and enjoy nature—focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats.
Audubon Greenwich encompasses 686 acres on seven sanctuaries and private parcels in Greenwich, including the Main Sanctuary (and Audubon Center) located at 613 Riversville Road. Our center opened its doors in 1943, as the National Audubon Society’s first environmental education center, and has been welcoming visitors and serving as a leader in place-based nature education ever since.
Hardwood forests, open fields, a lake, streams, and vernal pools, as well as remnants of early homestead settlement, can be found at the Audubon Center in Greenwich. In addition to its rich education programs, the center and staff coordinate Audubon’s Bird-Friendly Communities work in Connecticut. Audubon Connecticut's offices are also located at our main center building—the Kimberlin Nature Education Center.
Audubon Greenwich is part of Audubon Connecticut, a state office of the National Audubon Society, and the Atlantic Flyway. The Audubon Center in Greenwich is one of three Audubon Connecticut centers in the state—the sister centers include Audubon Center Bent of the River and Sharon Audubon Center.
