Creating Bird-Friendly Communities

Protecting birds and the places they need.

Please Note: Our Closure Status

The health of our visitors, supporters, and staff is of utmost importance to the Greenwich Audubon Center. In an effort to help protect our community from COVID-19, we are following recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as state and local governments and our center buildings and facilities (including restrooms) are CLOSED until further notice.

As of Saturday, July 18, 2020, our CENTER AND OTHER SANCTUARY TRAILS ARE OPEN daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

We are continuing to fulfill our mission of connecting people to nature through regular online updates, videos, and resources. For the latest information on events and offerings, please visit our events web page and Facebook page.

If you wish to help support the center during this challenging time, contributions may be made online via this link. We greatly appreciate your shared dedication to protecting birds, other wildlife, and the habitats they depend on.

Welcome

As part of Audubon Connecticut (a state office of the National Audubon Society) and the Atlantic Flyway, Greenwich Audubon Center's mission is to protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. We steward seven nature sanctuaries, totaling 686 acres of diverse habitat in Greenwich, Connecticut. We serve our community as a vibrant education center and the hub for Audubon’s Bird-Friendly Communities work in Connecticut.
