The health of our visitors, supporters, and staff is of utmost importance to the Sharon Audubon Center. In an effort to help protect our 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, and the center building is closed until further notice.
Our trails are open with appropriate measures to protect the health of our visitors. If you plan to visit, you are welcome to explore outside, but we will not have restrooms or accommodations available.
We are continuing to fulfill our mission of connecting people to nature through online engagement. For the latest information on events and offerings, please visit our events web page and Facebook page.
Contributions to help support the center during your visit may be made online via this link or in a donation box outside the center building at the start of the trails. Thank you for your support and shared dedication to nature!
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!
