“Outdoors & Recreation in Greenwich, CT”
The Audubon Center in Greenwich opened in 1942 and is the National Audubon Society's first environmental education center. Audubon owns and stewards 12 sanctuaries in Greenwich which total 686 acres and feature 20 miles of hiking trails. The main sanctuary, located at 613 Riversville Road, is 285 acres and has 7 miles of walking trails that lead hikers through hardwood forests, meadows, a lake, a stream, and many vernal pools. Reminders of the past include original New England homestead buildings, a mature apple orchard, historic cemetery, and miles of stone walls. 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 (human-made and present throughout the year), red maple swamps, and a small grove of hemlock trees.
