Creating Bird-Friendly Communities

Protecting birds and the places they need.

Please note, the Center will be closed through April 15

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, we are following recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as state and local governments and the center building is closed through at least April 15th. All center events and programs are also canceled through April 30th.

Greenwich Audubon Center’s trails are open with appropriate measures to protect the health of our visitors. If you plan to visit, you are welcome to explore outside, but we will not have restrooms or accommodations available. Contributions to help support the center during your visit may be made online via this link or in a donation box outside the center building at the start of the trails.

For more information, please read our Center Director's official letter to our community here.

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.

Visitors are welcome to enjoy trails, nature programs, conservation-themed events, and nature store throughout the year. Come learn and explore with us!
