Located near the Connecticut River, the Connecticut Audubon Center at Glastonbury has taken full advantage of its unique location since its opening in 1982.  This Center's focus is to promote awareness of the Connecticut River ecosystem and the birds and habitats it supports, and to foster their preservation through education and related activities.

The Center's 4,000 square-foot facility offers a full range of environmental programs and a full calendar of events throughout the year for people of all ages.  The Center contains a Discovery Room with hands-on exhibits, wildlife mounts, interpretive natural history exhibits, a diorama of Connecticut River's Great Meadow, and small live animals.  The grounds surrounding the Center contain the Four Seasons Wildlife Garden, a bird-feeding station, and a picnic area.

The Center is adjacent to the 48-acre town-owned Earle Park, with its forest trails and scenic vistas of Tom's Pond, meadows, and bluffs overlooking the Holland Brook river.  The park is home to a maturing forest of beech, tulip, and red oak trees and contains the state champion bitternut hickory tree.  It contains trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding.

Beautiful walking trails! Went this past week for a school field trip. The trails we're beautiful we went as far as the CT River and had our lunch there. Our guide was great an amazingly patient person to handle a class and a half of third graders. She pointed out sights along the way and challenged the students to utilize what they had been learning in science class. Be prepared with bug spray as you will definitely need if going in warmer months. They have a small gift shop in the main building and a few exhibits of different local birds and animals. Everyone enjoyed seeing the larger birds of prey that were housed outside.

I really enjoyed this having looked for a place to walk in Ct being originally from Ct, found it. It's small and not long to walk but so nice, people who work there are helpful too. Parking there is good, it's in a safe area and I would go back when in the area.

Great place to visit to see their animals and relax and learn about wildlife, or hike on the trails near the building.

Wonderful place to visit! Seeing animals that have been rescued and are being taken care of is a great experience and heart warming.
