Delightful small museum dedicated to the birds of CT. Nice place to take children. Interesting special events. Nice gift shop.

Great place to visit. The museum is geared towards a younger audience but has a friendly staff who care about their rescues and their work. Trails are mostly well maintained tho a few get spotty and you might go the wrong direction, but you just end up on a different trail. Ponds with ducks are a must! So is the huge meadow.

The museum was closed on my New Year's day visit, but the fence was unlocked to allow visitors to walk the grounds and enjoy the scenery. The walk around the pond is very nice, but there was a lack of birds due to the winter months. Ducks swam in the pond, creating some nice pictures. I recommend this place for people who want to sit in a quiet area and enjoy natural surroundings. I look forward to coming back in the warmer months to observe more wildlife.

We stopped here on a Sunday and had a picnic in the gazebo. The buildings were closed, but that was alright. It was a very peaceful and lovely place. Watched the birds and butterflies and just relaxed. Had places to throw away our trash and water to fill up out water bottles. Great place to stop!

Very interesting and historic place. Has recently re-opened after renovations. Don't miss going inside the museum! Walking trails, birds abound, lovely pond ~ watch for turtles, frogs, ducks, geese. Be sure to read the messages, especially the info on the building you see pictured here.

A must see in Ffld. The exhibit is very cool. Great bird display outside, the owls are magnificent. Check out all the displays inside.

and the "oldest bird sanctuary in the United States" outdoors is very small. Plan on just a half hour walking all around. Noisy area since this is very close to I-95. And you can even see the traffic from many locations. I would NOT call this a suburban sanctuary, although I did see half a dozen mallards in the small pond on the property.

There are benches to sit down on but are dirty and in poor condition, about ready to fall apart (pretty old, maybe 10-15 years old), and some knocked over. The roof of the museum looked like it was moderately damaged in SuperStorm Sandy years ago and never repaired. This location needs a LOT of donations to put in back into decent shape that you can call this a "destination" of "things to do". (Hundred thousand $+)

Enjoyed a nice hike at the Audubon Society in Fairfield. The staff opened up the rescued raptor area for us to go see the birds. Very cool to see owls and hawks up close.

§Like everything our peerless AuduboSociety undertakes, their recent NITE-Time IN-Door Cook-OUT (which also featured a soupcon of BYO goodies) was SOIGNEE. No other word for it. Mr LARSON (Roy) would be very proud.

We love the Connecticut Audubon. This particular location is a bit smaller in acreage than other CT Audubon locations, but is a nice slice of nature wedged between I-95 and Fairfield town center. I'd recommend this location for folks who live in the area, if you do it's worth checking it out. However for those living a bit further away, there is nothing so spectacular that would elevate this to the level of a destination.
