Greenwich Audubon Center's mission is to engage and educate people to conserve, restore, and enjoy nature—focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats.
Greenwich Audubon Center stewards seven sanctuaries and private parcels (totaling 686 acres) 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 Greenwich Audubon Center's Main Sanctuary. 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.
Greenwich Audubon Center is part of Audubon Connecticut, a state office of the National Audubon Society, and the Atlantic Flyway. It is one of three Audubon Connecticut centers in the state—the sister centers include Bent of the River Audubon Center and Sharon Audubon Center.
