About Audubon Greenwich


Opened in 1943, the Greenwich sanctuary was the first educational nature center for the National Audubon Society. Pictured here without the wings added, this building still stands today. Audubon Greenwich has a long history of teaching adults and children about the wonders of nature. For decades, the site hosted the Summer Ecology Workshop, where visitors spent a week staying overnight on the preserve and studying nature with dozens of talented naturalists including Ted Gilman, who celebrated his 30th anniversary with Audubon in January of 2007.
