Kate at J Stockard Flyfishing sent this photo: “We hiked at Deer Pond Farm for about 2 hours on Saturday morning – saw about 10 people, all keeping social distance and many wearing masks. We’ve been really enjoying our walks.”

April 23, 2020 — The Connecticut Audubon Society’s sanctuaries remain open to the public. We encourage you to visit our sanctuaries while also observing the latest CDC recommendations regarding social distancing. 

To help us keep these open spaces available while still supporting national and local efforts to slow the spread of COVD-19, we need your help.

  • Please stay home if you are feeling sick
  • Please limit groups, including families, to 5 people. No picnics or sports. Stay six feet or more apart at all times.

Please leave your dog home. No dogs are allowed on any Connecticut Audubon sanctuary except for Smith Richardson, where dogs must be on a leash at all times.  

We will be closely monitoring developments and recommendations from federal, state, and local officials and will provide updates, as needed.

We are following the guidance provided by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection regarding the use of trails and preserves.  CLICK HERE for CT DEEP guidelines.

We encourage you to wear a mask while visiting our sanctuaries.

  • No bikes
  • Please stay on the trails at all times (unless to pass others keeping 6 feet apart)
  • We have portable toilets at our Milford, Bafflin and Larsen Sanctuaries; otherwise there may be no rest room facilities.  Please plan accordingly.
  • Please take any and all trash away with you
