Spaces are still available for the Connecticut Audubon Society’s summer camp in Fairfield, which offers full and half-day sessions in a unique learning environment. Campers ages 4 through 14 attend week-long, science and nature-themed programs that use the varied habitats of the Larsen Wildlife Sanctuary and the Center’s interactive classroom facilities to inspire and build a life-long connection to, and appreciation for, the natural world.
The staff is led by teacher-naturalists, with education/science experience, and is trained in first aid, CPR and Epi-Pen. High staff-to-camper ratio ensures a safe camp experience. Options for before and after care, and “lunch bunch” are available for half-day sessions.

Are you interested in expanding your knowledge of the habitats, plants, animals and natural history of Connecticut? Would you like to experience the rewards of sharing that knowledge and teaching others about the stewardship of Connecticut’s natural resources? If so, our Master Naturalist Woodland Program may be for you!
Participants will learn skills to help identify common plants and animals. Topics include introductory botany, geology, entomology (insects) amphibians, reptiles, ornithology, mammals, marine ecosystems, interpretive guide techniques and the history of the Connecticut Audubon Society.
The Master Naturalist Woodland Program at the Center at Fairfield provides 40 hours of classroom and field training in four-hour sessions over 10 weeks (see our graduates from 2017 here). Training programs prepare adults of all experience levels to become naturalists in their communities and to contribute to environmental education and conservation efforts through volunteer service.
Classes are taught by field experts. The cost is $250 for members and $305 for non-members (includes membership; to become a member, click here). As part of the tuition, participants must be able to contribute 10 hours of volunteer service within the year following the training. To complete the program, please expect to attend every class. Application deadline is August 1. To download the Application Form click here. To view our flyer, click here.
