Guided Hike (Anytime of year)

Join a Greenwich Audubon Center naturalist for a private hike!  Our naturalist will be your personal guide and show you notable habitats and wildlife around the Greenwich Audubon Center trails.  Nature is exciting and always changing, so you never know what we will find along the way!  This program is ideal for people who want to enjoy beautiful scenery while hiking.  We recommend this program for ages 6 and up, and people comfortable hiking in areas with a slight incline for portion of the experience.  If someone in your party will be using a stroller or wheelchair, please let us know in advance so that we may plan accordingly to support your visit. 

 

Birding Adventure (Anytime of year)

Do you love birds and want to learn more about birds?  Then this is the perfect program for you!  Our Bird Education Specialist Ryan MacLean will help you locate wild birds at Audubon.  Ryan will show you their beautiful habitats, and then help you identify their songs and physical features!  In addition, we will provide you with supportive gear and materials such as binoculars and field guides.  This program is ideal for all ages and abilities.  If someone in your party will be using a stroller or wheelchair, please let us know in advance so that we may support your visit. 

 

Pond and Wetland Adventure (Spring - fall)

There are so many fascinating creatures that live in and around ponds and wetlands!  During this fun program, an Audubon naturalist will give you a tour of our pond and wetland habitats, and then we will try to catch animals such as frogs, tadpoles, and salamanders!  We will provide you with gear and materials to support your experience such as nets, containers, and field guides.  Once we catch these animals, we will observe and identify them together before we release them back to the wild.  This program is interactive, takes place along our accessible trail, and ideal for all ages and abilities.  If someone in your party will be using a stroller or wheelchair, please let us know in advance so that we may support your visit. 

Owl Adventure (Anytime of year, 1 hour) 

Have you ever been on an evening stroll to look and listen for owls?  Did you know there are up to four species we can possibly encounter at the Greenwich Audubon Center at night?  Join bird specialist Ryan MacLean for a unique experience to explore with us at night while we look for owls!  In addition to showing you their habitats and discussing their natural histories, Ryan will mimic their calls and try to get the owls to call back, or even fly to a nearby perch!  These owls are wild and unpredictable, but there is always a good chance of encountering one with some patience combined with Ryan’s incredible owl calls.  It’s also a beautiful experience to walk outside with us on our grounds at night.  For an optimal experience, we ask for no more than 5 guests in your party and if there are children, we please ask that they're prepared for periods of time where we will quietly listen for the owls.

 

Woodcock Adventure (March - April, 1 hour)

One of our favorite signs of spring at the Greenwich Audubon Center is the amazing aerial mating display of the American Woodcock! These woodland relatives of our sandpipers and shorebirds are truly spectacular acrobats of the sky who put on a mesmerizing performance against the twilight sky. You and up to eight people can join naturalist Ryan MacLean for a special evening on our Hawk Watch Lawn to have a front row seat for this yearly performance.  There are many other sights and sounds of early spring that we will be able to look and listen for such as Spring Peepers and hooting Barred Owls.  Don’t miss this special opportunity to experience the magic of early spring at night here at Greenwich Audubon!
