Audubon Center Bent of the River is a 700-acre nature sanctuary and education center located in Southbury, Connecticut. It is part of Audubon Connecticut (a state office of the National Audubon Society) and the Atlantic Flyway, and is dedicated to Audubon's open space and working lands conservation efforts in Connecticut.
Visitors are welcome to enjoy trails, nature programs, and conservation-themed events throughout the year. Come learn and explore with us!
Each month take small actions to make a difference for birds. In May, participate in Global BigDay on May 5 by looking for birds and recording your sightings at eBird.org. Remember, simple changes around your house or yard can be better for birds too—and for our climate. Mow less, avoid pesticides, think organic, and save water. Join the 2018 Year of the Bird celebration!
Tavares will become executive director of Audubon New York and Audubon Connecticut after successful tenure at Rainforest Alliance.
