The National Audubon Society manages seven separate sanctuaries with over 600 total acres in Greenwich. The main sanctuary opened in 1942 and became the society's first environmental education center.
All are welcome to enjoy the trails throughout the year from sunrise to sunset. The santuary's trails cover forests, fields, lakes, streams and pools. The paths give a feel of New England's rich history with stone walls, apple orchards and colonial homestead buildings.
Ecosystems at the sanctuary include large open fields, successional thickets, young and mature forests of mixed oak, beech, and maple, Mead Lake, shrub swamps, several vernal pools, Indian Spring Pond , red maple swamps, and a small grove of hemlock trees. Also at the sanctuary are a beautiful old apple orchard, honeybee hives, wildflower meadows, a butterfly garden, and bird feeding station.
With its luxury homes and waterfront properties, this town also has an excellent education system and a variety of things to do.
