The Connecticut Audubon Society is a conservation organization that provides environmental education and outdoor activities here at its Coastal Center. This is a picturesque and peaceful place where visitors can climb up the spiral stairs of an observation deck to view birds soaring in the sky or having lunch in a bird feeder. Visitors can walk along a boardwalk toward the water to take photographs of birds, butterflies and plant life. Birthday parties can also be held at the center. No pets, fires, picnics, alcohol, collecting or swimming allowed. Walking on the sand dunes is also prohibited.
