The Grounds at Birdcraft
The grounds at Birdcraft include the Birdcraft Sanctuary and the Museum and Caretakers Cottage. The Sanctuary consists of a pond and gardens that have been planted to attract birds and butterflies. Much of the Sanctuary grounds have been restored and are maintained by the Sasqua Garden Club.
The Sanctuary is open seven days a week from dawn to dusk. The building, including restrooms, is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Museum* and Cottage were the original headquarters of the Connecticut Audubon Society. Birdcraft was created in 1914 by Mabel Osgood Wright, the founder of the Connecticut Audubon Society. You can read a short history of Birdcraft and biography of Wright here.
