Greenwich Audubon Center
The Greenwich Audubon Center opened its doors in 1942 as the National Audubon Society's first environmental education center in the US. The Center was established on land bestowed by Eleanor Clovis Reese and H. Hall Clovis. The Audubon Center is a 295-acre sanctuary with about 7 miles of hiking trails that take you through a hardwood forest and adjacent to a lake, streams, and ponds.
You will also find old stone walks and original New England homestead buildings. From its very beginnings, the Audubon Center welcomed visitors and invited them to learn about nature through the programs it provided.
The Greenwich Audubon Center owns and oversees 686 acres on 7 sanctuaries in Greenwich, CT, including the main sanctuary located at 613 Riversville Rd. The Center welcomes the public and encourages them to enjoy the miles of trails through every season of the year from sunrise to sunset.
The sanctuaries are a refuge for a vast collection of birds and other wildlife, including muskrats, river otters, ducks, white-tailed deer, coyotes, nesting bluebirds, wild turkeys, bats, and a wide assortment of reptiles, amphibians, and birds.
Each year, 20,000 people visit its Center to access its education camps on nature, sanctuaries, and trails.
