COVID-19 & CENTER CLOSURE STATUS

The health of our visitors, supporters, and staff is of utmost importance. To help protect the Greenwich Audubon Center 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.

Until further notice, please note the following:

  • Our CENTER BUILDING(S) and facilities (including restrooms) are CLOSED
  • Our SANCTUARY TRAILS are OPEN daily from sunrise to sunset
  • INDOORS (Summer Camp and Select Programs)- MASKS and SOCIAL DISTANCING are required for all individuals in indoor locations at our center
  • OUTDOORS – Only non-COVID-vaccinated individuals must wear a mask OR practice social distancing when in proximity to others not in their personal group/cohort
  • THE NATURE STORE is open for email/phone ordering and CURBSIDE PICKUP
  • We are offering EVENTS AND PROGRAMS at limited capacity—please visit our events web page and Facebook page for the latest information

During these challenging times, our center has lost critical funding, staff positions, and programs, but we continue to forge ahead to connect people with nature and sustain the local conservation work that birds, other wildlife, and people in our community depend upon. If you wish to help to support the center, please click here to make a contribution.

Thank you for 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.
