When in Sharon it is well worth a trip to the Sharon Audubon Centre. There are excellent well maintained trails, some of which are open to you and your dog. It is very educational and there is a small museum with live and stuffed animals. Well recommended.

I am a native of Sharon, attended school programs as a youth, and know most all the workers at the Audubon. Great folks at a great center. If you have the time, and want to learn and experience the grounds and all it has to offer....GO!

Lovely grounds and trails. Kids will like the raptors on display. The ponds with their expanses of lily pads are beautiful on a summer evening.

There are nice trails to walk on. There are some trails you can bring your dog on. They have falcons, vultures, owls, bald eagle on display. The people working there were very helpful. It was worth the trip.

The museum is a little out of date, but the trails and knowledge available make this an amazing place. Don't pass up the chance to walk around this location, but make sure that you bring your cameras and bug spray.

I grew up in CT and until recently, had never spent time in the northwest corner. I've been missing out. There is so much more beauty in this corner of the state than in the rest of the state! Visiting Sharon Audubon Center is a good way to spend a portion of a day seeing what New England is all... More
