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 through at least April 15th. All center events and programs are also canceled through April 30th.

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. 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.

For more information, please read our Center Director's official letter to our community here

We steward four nature sanctuaries and more than 2,700 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!
