The Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut, Inc. is proud to have many organizations affiliated with ours. All excellent organizations, they share our commitment and passion for advancing our mission.
Founded in 1898, the Connecticut Audubon Society operates nature facilities in Fairfield, Milford, Pomfret, Hampton, Sherman, and Old Lyme, and an EcoTravel office in Essex.
Connecticut Audubon manages 22 wildlife sanctuaries encompassing more than 3,400 acres of open space in Connecticut, and educates over 100,000 children and adults annually. Connecticut Audubon is an independent organization, not affiliated with any national or governmental group.
To mark the organization’s 125th anniversary, Connecticut Audubon has become part of the Lights Out Connecticut coalition and asked for Connecticut citizens’ help by turning out lights that lure birds straight into windows and buildings resulting in over 1 billion bird deaths each year. The ask is to turn out your lights from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. during peak spring and fall bird migration: May 1 through May 31 and from August 15 through November 15.
There is a robust calendar of events and programs on the Connecticut Audubon website offering nature walks, guided bird walks, and educational programing for children and adults. To learn more about the important work being done or to explore the events coming up, please visit: https://www.ctaudubon.org
We hope your organization will consider joining our family of affiliates. The annual fee is minimal. Membership will further advance and enhance your visibility throughout Connecticut and beyond.
