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.

Our center building has resumed being OPEN Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and CLOSED Monday through Wednesday.

Our trail system is open year-round, seven days a week from sun-up to sunset. While using the trails, please adhere to the following rules:

  • No dogs or pets are permitted on the property. Violators will be subjected to fines.
  • No smoking, alcohol, or drugs permitted on the property.
  • No fishing, swimming or skating allowed.
  • No foraging or collecting of any kind.
  • No camping or fires.
  • Trails are for foot traffic only - no bikes, off-road vehicles, horses, or skis.
  • Remain on marked trails at all times.
  • Harassment of birds and wildlife, including the use of audio lures, is strictly prohibited.
  • Hiking can be a strenuous activity: hike at your own risk.
  • Please help keep our sanctuary beautiful! Please carry out what you carry in.

Enjoy the trails and thank you so much for visiting!
