Audubon: 45th Anniversary Celebration September 15 2016, 0 Comments

The Connecticut Audubon Society turns back the clock on Saturday, September 24, to host the 45th anniversary celebration of the Center at Fairfield. The retro evening—1970s style—will commemorate the Center’s opening to the public on May 1, 1971.


The event takes place at the Center, 2325 Burr Street in Fairfield, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and live music by The Merwin Mountain Band will include selections reminiscent of that era. Guests can take part in a silent auction and intriguing bird-themed “happenings” throughout the evening.

Since first opening its doors in 1971, the Connecticut Audubon Society’s Center at Fairfield has become recognized as a hub of environmental education activities and events year round.


Also on Saturday, Sept. 24, be among the first to view the debut of AudubonBons -- four flavors of imported Belgian chocolates, handcrafted in Fairfield for The Connecticut Audubon Society by Master Chocolatier Benoit Racquet of BE Chocolat.

After the celebration AudubonBons will be available in the Center at Fairfield’s Nature Store, and online. All sales of the chocolates will help support The Connecticut Audubon Society’s conservation and environmental education programs.
