Sunday, May 27 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Audubon Sharon

Please join us Memorial Day Weekend as we enjoy fine wines and delicious hors d’oeuvres while taking in the beautiful views overlooking Audubon Sharon’s Ford Pond. Meet Eileen Fielding, our accomplished new Center Director, and hear the rescue stories of our resident raptors. Win a private tour of the Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic (and more) in the Silent Auction. Celebrate with old friends and new at this very special party.

Audubon Sharon is the only staffed facility in Northwest Connecticut that cares for injured and orphaned wildlife. Because of your generous support and the dedication of more than 50 volunteers, Audubon Sharon’s Rehabilitation Center treated more than 850 birds in 2017…from Bald Eagles and Barred Owls to Kingfishers and Chimney Swifts. That’s a 15% increase in avian patients cared for over the previous year…a great reason to celebrate!

Your past generosity is greatly appreciated and we sincerely hope you’ll consider becoming a sponsor of this year’s celebration. Proceeds go directly to support conservation and rehabilitation at Audubon Sharon.

Thank you for your shared dedication to nature! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Yoga sessions are open to the public and donation-based. If you feel you’ve benefited from the experience and can afford to donate, please do so. Nobody will be turned away for lack of funds. You are welcome to bring your own yoga mat or rent one from us for $2 (or just go natural on the earth!). The sessions will be led by instructor Damian Paglia. Follow us on Facebook for garden locations and updates!

My 20-Year Life with the Boathouse

A Talk by Rick Wies, Architect

May 30 at 5:45 pm

Kroon Hall, 195 Prospect Street, New Haven (Yale School of Forestry)

A two-decade long, $37 million project in mitigation of the loss of the old Yale boathouse under the Pearl Harbor Bridge, the Canal Dock Boathouse on New Haven Harbor will open this summer.  The talk will explore a story of tension, collaboration, defeat, and eventual success as architects, city officials, contractors, and local campaigners worked to preserve reminders of the past in a modern boathouse that will serve as a distinctive community space.

Followed by a reception.

Presented by the New Haven Preservation Trust.

RSVP at or 203-562-5919.  $20 donation.  All welcome.
