About Earthplace

The mission of Earthplace is to build a passion in our community for nature and the environment through education, experience, and action. Earthplace has been based in Westport, Connecticut, since its founding in 1958, and has grown to include many mission-related resources including a state-licensed preschool, a natural history museum, and Harbor Watch, a locally renowned water quality research program. Its sanctuary consists of 74 contiguous acres of open space that supports a variety of habitats and several miles of walking trails—including Wheels in the Woods IV, a universal access trail suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. It is also home to the live Birds of Prey Exhibit and the indoor Animal Hall for public viewing.
