Sharon Audubon Center manages three nature sanctuaries (including our center’s property) along with additional private parcels of land in northwestern Connecticut—protecting more than 2,100 primarily forested acres in total. Our center hosts programs throughout the year and houses a small natural history museum, the Audubon Nature Store, and the Children’s Adventure Center. Its adjacent grounds include raptor aviaries with live birds of prey, pollinator gardens, a butterfly house, and a working sugarhouse. This location is home to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic for injured and orphaned wildlife. The center and staff also coordinate Audubon’s Forests conservation work in Connecticut.
We have been connecting people with nature since our center was founded in 1961. As part of Audubon Connecticut, a state office of the National Audubon Society, and the Atlantic Flyway, our mission is to protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. Among the many ways we do this, is by creating life-changing experiences that inspire and enable school children, community members, and their families to appreciate, understand, and protect the natural world.

Soar with us from the comfort of your home! Join us for a virtual celebration of Wildlife and Conservation in the Northwest Corner.
Raptors and Riesling
Sunday, May 30, 2021 at 5 – 6 p.m.
Every May, Sharon Audubon Center welcomes you to soar with the birds at Raptors and Riesling, celebrating our wildlife rehabilitation and conservation efforts.
This year, you can once again join us for a lively virtual visit with staff, raptors, and special guests, on May 30th. Get a peek behind the scenes, hear inside stories about our wildlife patients and resident birds, and help us celebrate the release of one or more recovered raptors back to its wild home! (We also hope to see you at aviary tours later in the season.)
The Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic at the Sharon Audubon Center is the only staffed facility in Northwest Connecticut that cares for injured and orphaned wildlife. Each year, your support helps Sharon Audubon Center care for hundreds of bird patients and the habitats they depend on. Raptors and Riesling is a significant part of our annual budget. Thank you for your generosity and shared dedication to nature!
