Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of approximately 450 local chapters, 120 campus chapters, 17 state and regional offices, 34 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country.

The Greenwich Audubon Center opened in 1943 as the National Audubon Society’s first environmental education center in the United States. The 285-acre sanctuary has approximately seven miles of trails that lead to a hardwood forest, old fields, a lake, streams and vernal ponds. Each year, over tens of thousands of adults and children visit Audubon to hike and participate in school, family and adult programs, including citizen science surveys and counts, land stewardship projects, summer camps, lectures and presentations, and natural history and ecology education programs. Ultimately, our programs give people the information they need to make informed decisions about how they interact with nature. Through education, public policy, and science, we hope to build a culture of conservation and environmental stewards for now and in the future.

All camp staff will be required to complete and pass a COVID-19 health questionnaire each day before the start of camp. At the discretion of the Center Director, summer staff will be required to receive a COVID-19 test multiple times throughout the summer. Staff showing/feeling any signs of COVID-19, will be asked to be tested for COVID-19 and remain home until results are received. If the counselor tests positive, they will be required to not return to camp until they have complied with current State guidelines for quarantine.
