With Gratitude

Thank you to our supporters for caring about birds, their habitats, and Bent of the River Audubon Center! Because of your generosity on April 21 and 22, we raised $14,353 through Connecticut Community Foundation's Give Local event. Thank you also to CCF and the many event sponsors for supporting this amazing local giving opportunity.

Your giving will make a greater impact on April 21 and 22!

Beginning at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, April 21 through Wednesday, April 22 at 7 p.m. Bent of the River Audubon Center has the opportunity to raise much-needed funds to support the work at our center that is critical to nature education and our work that supports bird and habitat conservation.
