Center Closed, Trails Remain Open

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, 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!
