Welcome

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 3,000 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!
