Our center building has resumed being OPEN, Thursday through Saturday, from 1:00 - 4:30 PM. Visitors are welcome to explore our non-releasable wildlife, nature center exhibits, and gift shop. Trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset.
As part of Audubon Connecticut, a state office of the National Audubon Society and the Atlantic Flyway, Sharon Audubon Center's mission is to protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. We steward four nature sanctuaries and more than 2,100 primarily wooded acres in Northwestern Connecticut. We serve our community as an engaging nature education center, Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic, and 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!
The Sharon Audubon Center’s Motus wildlife tracking tower receives pings from tracking devices on birds, helping scientists better understand their movements.
These simple tips can ensure your feeder is a safe source of food for birds all year long.

Scout Pronto Breslin is interested in finding nature-based, sustainable solutions to take on the climate crisis. Where does she get her inspiration? From Cliff, the Peregrine Falcon, and others at our Sharon Audubon Center Rehabilitation Clinic.
Scout started volunteering at the Sharon Audubon Center in 2018, caring for the wildlife patients and hand-feeding orphaned songbirds in our rehab clinic. Throughout the years, she has also cared for our resident educational animals. Scout participated in the Teen Rehab Internship Program, an intensive week-long summer camp for teens that provides training in animal care and basic wildlife rehabilitation practices. She has also enjoyed teaching visitors about our resident animals on display and started training in handling our resident educational birds of prey on the glove for educational programs.
Thank you Scout for your amazing work and dedication to wildlife and nature!
