The Connecticut Audubon Society protects Connecticut’s birds, other wildlife, and their habitats through conservation, education, and advocacy.
We envision that our efforts will lead to a future where all can share and experience the joys of nature and understand the importance of environmental preservation.
Founded in 1898, the Connecticut Audubon Society operates nature facilities in Fairfield, Milford, Pomfret, Hampton, Sherman, and Old Lyme, and an EcoTravel office in Essex.
Connecticut Audubon manages 21 wildlife sanctuaries encompassing more than 3,300 acres of open space in Connecticut, and educates over 100,000 children and adults annually. Connecticut Audubon is an independent organization, not affiliated with any national or governmental group.
Connecticut Audubon Society’s scientists, educators, citizen scientists, and volunteers work to preserve birds and their environments in Connecticut. Our work includes sanctuary management, advocacy, environmental education and activities at our centers, scientific studies, and our annual Connecticut State of the Birds report.
In 2019 our State Board of Directors made a commitment to advancing the organization’s diversity, equity, and inclusion with the following resolution: Be it resolved that The Connecticut Audubon Society is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion practices in the organization at all levels.
