Programs & Events in the Greater Hartford Area

Welcome to the Connecticut Audubon Society of the Greater Hartford Area. We are a “virtual center” centrally located and can run programs in Hartford and many surrounding locations. Our flexible educators offer programs that are either virtual (via Zoom or Google Meet) or in person, meeting you at your school, library, or nearby park or conservation property. We take full advantage of our unique location in central Connecticut, working to promote awareness of the Connecticut River ecosystem and the birds and habitats it supports, and to foster conservation through education and related activities.

COMMUNITY PROGRAMS:

We offer exciting and educational community programs for children and adults! These programs work very well as virtual programs, but can also be done in person at your location. Contact Catie Resor, Education Program Manager at cresor@ctaudubon.org for more information or click on the program title to book your program online.
