10/3/2020 - Choose Your Own Audubon Adventure

Choose-Your-Own-Adventure options include three themes that you may choose from for your personal group outing: Bird Walk, Nature Hike, or Pomperaug River Exploration. Dates available are October 3, 17 or 31.

Private Bird Walk
Join us for a private morning bird walk through our sanctuary. The Bent's meadows, shrub-lands, and woodlands provide great habitat for migrating birds, such as Warblers, Vireos, Indigo Buntings, Thrushes, Orioles, and more. This walk will be customized to the participants in your party.

Guided Hike
Take a private hike with Bent of the River! Your personal guide will show you notable habitats and wildlife around the center trails. Nature is exciting and always changing, so you never know what we will find along the way! This program is ideal for people who want to enjoy beautiful scenery while hiking. We recommend this program for ages 6 and up, and people comfortable hiking in areas with a slight incline for a portion of the experience.

Explore the Pomperaug River
There are many fascinating creatures that live in and around the Pomperaug River! During this recreational program, an Audubon naturalist will share the human and natural history of the river, and teach you to catch animals such as crayfish, insect larvae, and small fish. The Bent will supply you with gear and materials to use during your experience (such as nets, containers, and field guides). Once the animals are caught, we will observe and identify the organisms and learn how they can help indicate the health of the river before we release them back to the wild. You may have up to 10 people attend your program session. Please make sure each member of your party brings and wears a mask.After booking your program, one of our naturalists will reach out to you to find out which program you are interested in doing.
