This is a lovely ride as the road meanders through the wooded countryside and past many large estates and homes that are so iconic of this wealthy community that is a stone's throw away from Manhattan.
Audubon Greenwich was the National Audubon Society's first education center. It is comprised of 285 acres with 7 miles of walking trails wending through a hardwood forest, old fields & orchards, and past a lake, streams and ponds. The Kimberlin Nature Education Center, Nature Art Gallery, and Nature Store are also located here.
Of special interest for visitors from August – mid. November is the Hawk Watch. The Audubon Greenwich is located on a major migratory route for hawks and is one of the top places in New England to watch this annual migration-passing overhead. Every October the Audubon has a Hawk Watch Festival & Green Bazaar to celebrate this phenomenon.
