Welcome

Audubon Sharon encompasses four nature sanctuaries and 3,000 acres in Northwestern Connecticut, an education center, and a Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic that is part of Audubon Connecticut, a state office of the National Audubon Society, and the Atlantic Flyway. Audubon Sharon serves as the hub for Audubon’s Forests conservation work in Connecticut.

Visitors are welcome to enjoy trails, live animal exhibits, nature programs, and conservation-themed events throughout the year. Come learn and explore with us!

Please note that the Sharon Audubon Center’s exhibit building and shop will be closed from September 5 thru 7, 2018. The grounds and trails will be open as usual.

Year of the Bird
Get Involved

Make This Your Year of the Bird

Each month take small actions to make a difference for birds. September's featured action is to Help Birds On Their Journey. Window collisions are a major cause of bird deaths. Turn off lights at night and use decals to make your windows bird-friendly. Other actions like mow less, avoid pesticides, think organic, and save water make a difference too. Join the 2018 Year of the Bird celebration!
