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. October's featured action is to Help Spot, Count, and Record Birds. Everyday citizens like you can help scientists learn about bird behavior by entering bird info into eBird.org. This also helps us to know where birds are and to identify areas in need of habitat conservation support. Other actions like mow less, avoid pesticides, think organic, and save water make a difference too. Join the 2018 Year of the Bird celebration!
