Come and see native plants and animal species and venture on the miles of trails.

The Greenwich Audubon Center opened in 1942 and is open from 9 am to 5 pm most days, with trails that are open every day (365 days a year) from sunrise to sunset. There are 7 miles of trails at the center leading to a hardwood forest, lake, streams, and vernal ponds. On the trails are some remnants of the past, such as stone walks, an old apple orchard, and some original New England homestead buildings. The Center is home to 201 bird species, 27 types of mammals, and 24 amphibian and reptile species. You may see river otters, muskrats, wood ducks, white-tailed deer, coyotes, flying squirrels, wild turkeys, bluebirds, spotted salamanders, owls, warblers, and more on your visit. The Greenwich Audubon Center has beautiful wildflower meadows, a butterfly garden, honeybee hives, and a bird feeding station.

The Kimberlin Nature Education Center building features exhibits and has some staff offices and classrooms on site. Hilfiger Children's Learning Center is within the Greenwich Audubon Center and has interpretive natural history exhibits and hands-on nature activities. Be sure to check out the Wildlife Viewing Window and honeybee hive exhibit. The Nature Gift Store sells books, bird feeders, binoculars, and other gifts. The main sanctuary is located at 613 Rivesville Road. Audubon Greenwich also manages other sanctuaries in town, including Fairchild Garden, Gimbel Sanctuary, Hemlock Gorge, Caldwell Sanctuary, Wood Duck Swamp, and Oneida Sanctuary totaling 686 acres of woodlands, meadows, and wetlands with 15 additional miles of hiking trails. This is a great spot to enjoy the great outdoors and be one with nature.
