Things To Do


Our 2020 celebration has been canceled due to the Covid-19 health risk. We hope to continue the festivities again in 2021. Stay safe and enjoy the beauty of the season!

BentFest 2019 — Join us at Bent of the River Audubon Center, with our avian friends, for our fun-filled nature festival for all ages! The festivities will include:

Admission: $10 per car (by cash or check at the gate). Lower your cost per individual and carbon footprint by carpooling. No pets permitted. Rain or shine.

BENTFEST RECYCLING DRIVE: We'll also be collecting $.05 redeemable recyclables—to help keep them out of the environment and help raise funds for our sanctuary. Give nature and the Bent a helping hand and we'll give you a FREE cookie! Simply drop off your $.05 redeemable glass bottles, plastic bottles (no caps), and aluminum cans at the Recycling Drive table while at BentFest.

Proceeds from BentFest and the Recycling Drive will go to Bent of the River Audubon Center.

Event questions or interested in being a BentFest volunteer or sponsor, please contact Kate Pratt at or 203-405-9113.

Thank You to Our Generous Sponsors
