About Us

Sharon Audubon Center manages three nature sanctuaries (including our center's property) along with additional private parcels of land in northwestern Connecticut—protecting more than 2,700 primarily forested acres in total. Our center hosts programs throughout the year and houses a small natural history museum, the Audubon Nature Store, and the Children's Adventure Center. Its adjacent grounds include raptor aviaries with live birds of prey, pollinator gardens, a butterfly house, and a working sugarhouse. This location is home to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic for injured and orphaned wildlife. The center and staff also coordinate Audubon’s Forests conservation work in Connecticut.

We have been connecting people with nature since our center was founded in 1961. As part of Audubon Connecticut, a state office of the National Audubon Society, and the Atlantic Flyway, our mission is to protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. Among the many ways we do this, is by creating life-changing experiences that inspire and enable school children, community members, and their families to appreciate, understand, and protect the natural world.

Sharon Audubon Center is one of three Audubon Connecticut centers in the state—the sister centers include Bent of the River Audubon Center (Southbury, Connecticut) and Greenwich Audubon Center.
