A National Historic Landmark, this historic (1914) museum highlights the natural history of the state with a focus on birdlife. Adjacent is a 6-acre sanctuary with trails.  Established by pioneering conservationist Mabel Osgood Wright, the museum contains dioramas, wildlife exhibits and dinosaur footprints. It represents the first private bird sanctuary and is on the Connecticut Women’s Heritage Trail. Connecticut Audubon Society offers year-round programs for children, families, adults and groups at its Birdcraft Museum and Sanctuary. Connecticut Audubon Society volunteers, licensed by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, have operated an important bird-banding station here since 1979; demonstrations and tours are available to any group by appointment (call: 203-259-0416).
