GUIDED HIKE - Take a private hike with Greenwich Audubon Center! Our naturalist will be your personal guide and show you notable habitats and wildlife around the center trails. Nature is exciting and always changing, so you never know what we will find along the way! This program is ideal for people who want to enjoy beautiful scenery while hiking. We recommend this program for ages 6 and up, and people comfortable hiking in areas with a slight incline for a portion of the experience. If someone in your party will be using a stroller or wheelchair, please let us know in advance so that we may plan accordingly to support your visit.

Program Fee: $200

BIRDING ADVENTURE - Do you love and want to learn more about birds? Then this is the perfect program for you! Our Bird Education Specialist Ryan MacLean will help you locate wild birds at Audubon. Ryan will show you their beautiful habitats, and then help you identify their songs and physical features. In addition, we will supply you with supportive gear and materials such as binoculars and field guides to use during your adventure. This program is ideal for all ages and abilities. If someone in your party will be using a stroller or wheelchair, please let us know in advance so that we may support your visit.

Program Fee: $225

POND AND WETLAND ADVENTURE - There are so many fascinating creatures that live in and around ponds and wetlands! During this fun program, an Audubon naturalist will give you a tour of our pond and wetland habitats, and then we will try to catch animals such as frogs, tadpoles, and salamanders. We will supply you with gear and materials to use during your experience (such as nets, containers, and field guides). Once we catch these animals, we will observe and identify them together before we release them back to the wild. This program is interactive, takes place along our accessible trail, and ideal for all ages and abilities. If someone in your party will be using a stroller or wheelchair, please let us know in advance so that we may support your visit.

Program Fee: $250

OWL ADVENTURE - Have you ever been on an evening stroll to look and listen for owls? Did you know there are up to four species we can possibly encounter at the Greenwich Audubon Center at night? Join bird specialist Ryan MacLean for a unique nighttime experience in search of owls! In addition to showing you owl habitats and discussing their natural histories, Ryan will mimic their calls and try to get the owls to call back, or even fly to a nearby perch! These owls are wild and unpredictable, but there is always a good chance of encountering one with some patience combined with Ryan’s incredible owl calls. It’s also a beautiful experience to walk outside on our grounds at night. For an optimal experience, we ask for no more than 5 guests in your party and if there are children, we please ask that they're prepared for periods of time where we will quietly listen for the owls.

Program Fee: $200
